Traful River runs through a breathtaking valley of incredible wind-and-water sculpted rock spires, minarets, and chimneys, strikingly unique views of the crystal clear Lake Traful with the backdrop of the white-capped Andes and lush forests.
The Traful is not a long river in miles but it has a lake on each end. That makes for the possibility of catching big fish anytime, this being its strongest feature. The Traful River receives runs of big brown and rainbow trout as well as of landlocked Atlantic salmon. And while the salmon are most prevalent early and late in the season, the Traful also has fine fishing for big trout all season long with evening hatches that can provide exceptional dry-fly fishing. That’s the way the Traful is, a river of surprises, a river with character, a beautiful piece of the planet running through unusual rock formations. It has the magical feeling of ‘the river of the spirits’.
The Horse Shoe Pool is a spot not to be missed on a late afternoon fishing session.
