The Story

Luxury accommodations, fine Chilean cuisine, spectacular views, fantastic fishing experiences for large brown and rainbow trout—all best describe Chimalfe Patagonia Lodge. This modern lodge is nestled on a hill with a unique and stunning view of the headwaters of the Yelcho River in the Lake District of southern Chile. This location allows access to both the lake as well as fly fishing for trout on the Palena, Yelcho, and Futaleufú Rivers. Together, these three rivers offer endless miles of world-class streamer and dry-fly fishing to large, aggressive brown and rainbow trout. Following each fishing day, picture yourself relaxing on the lodge’s deck, taking in views of glaciers and the Andes Mountains, while enjoying a pisco sour or a glass of Chilean red wine planning the next day’s adventures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great trip Excellent trip- the lodge and food were exceptional and the fishing was great. The trout were eating large Dragon fly flies off the surface and the scenery was unbelievable. We caught good numbers of fish, saw some very large fish a lost a few exceptional fish. Streamer fishing was excellent as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic trip! Amazing fishing. Big Fish! And lots of them....beautiful lodge. Gourmet food. Wonderful lodge. Beautiful views. Excellent guides. Can not say enough about the wonderful trip we just had. The travel to the boats from the the lodge was about 300 yards. The boat rides to the fishing was anywhere from 5-30 minutes. The guides were very knowledgeable and easy for even beginners. The negative is that it is hard to get to. 24 hours of travel and not much for non fisherman to do. But, for fishermen that want big rainbows and big browns this place is heaven.
