In the early days, before there were any fishing lodges at local ranches, our fishing trips consisted of staying in nice inns in town or near town, from where we drove to remote spots on rivers and lakes in the area to fish either by wading or on float trips. This program ran very successfully for more than a decade and it only started undergoing change when we started offering lodge accommodations at the fishing lodges next to each river.
However, while many people started favoring the ‘estancia’ lodge accommodations, others kept choosing to stay around the cute mountain village of San Martin de los Andes, benefiting from the different amenities and attractions that this involves, while still enjoying the classic Patagonian fishing experience.

Our town program offers a variety of the best accommodations in or near town including superb lunches by the rivers or great dinners in fine restaurants. Each morning your professional fishing guide will pick you up at your hotel and drive you to the various fishing stretches in the area.

Town Rivers may include stretches of the Chimehuín, the Malleo, the Aluminé, the Collon Cura or the Caleufu, to name some rivers, plus a number of interesting lakes as well. The fishing programs are adjusted to fishing conditions according to each different time during the season.

Our town program can be offered by itself or in combination with our other fishing destinations as well as all the wide variety of interesting touring options offered by our Destination Travel division.
