The Story

Enjoy fishing, local food, and the magnificence of Patagonia during our Orvis Week at Green Baker Lodge. The turquoise waters of the Baker River, local spring creeks, and other waters in the area are full of aggressive rainbow and brown trout that are sure to impress even the most well-traveled anglers. Along with the fishing, the local food, world-class Chilean wine, and striking scenery will round out the trip for a top-notch Patagonian experience. Although a bit off the beaten track, Green Baker Lodge is well worth the trip. The staff will make you feel right at home with pisco sours and hors d’oeuvres upon arrival, and that will just be the start. Their hospitality and accommodations are sure to impress. From larger cabins to accommodate big groups to private smaller rooms for solo travelers, Green Baker Lodge can meet your needs every step of the way. Join our Orvis Week at Green Baker Lodge for what is sure to be a fantastic week of everything Patagonia has to offer.

Guests can stay in a variety of accommodations. Green Baker Lodge has cabins that can accommodate groups of as many as eight guests, individual rooms for couples or solo travelers, and everything in between. In any case, your room will overlook the Cordón Contreras, the mountain range which holds back the Northern Ice Field. Breakfast, happy hour, and dinners are always served in the Angler’s Quincho, the main dining room accentuated by a large brick fireplace. Don’t forget to ask about the wood-fired hot tubs that overlook the river; they’re truly a great way to relax after a day of fishing.


Meals:

Green Baker Lodge offers a varied menu, so you can sample the best of Chilean and local cuisine at the highest level. You will enjoy excellent meats, salmon, Austral hake, and the unmissable lamb asado. These dishes are sure to delight your senses and will complete your experience in Chilean Patagonia. All this is accompanied by a wide selection of Chilean wines along with the excellent service from their friendly staff, which will make you feel right at home. At the end of the week, you will get to experience a classic Chilean Asado: a full lamb slow-roasted over an open fire. It’s the perfect environment in which to end the week with a glass of Chilean red wine and share stories from the water.


Alcohol:

There will be an open bar at the Green Baker Lodge. All beverages are included in trip price. Should you have any special dietary requests, please let us know in advance.

Arrival:

Once you arrive at Balmaceda Airport (BBA) you will be met by a member of the staff from Green Baker Lodge to gather your things and head south to the lodge. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the stunning views as you travel through one of the most scenic stretches of Chilean Patagonia. Your journey will take you past countless rivers, snowcapped peaks, and Lago Carrera (General Carrera Lake), the largest lake in Chile and the source of the Baker River. The drive to Green Baker Lodge takes approximately 5 hours, but it will fly by with all the scenery to take in.


Fishing Days:

Early-morning coffee and a hearty breakfast await you each day as you explore more of the Lago Carrera watershed. Lunch will be provided either on the river or back at the lodge. From protein-rich meals prepared to help you refuel during long summer days to steaming bowls of soup and hot dishes on colder days, the chefs at Green Baker Lodge provide just what anglers need when they set the rod down. Following lunch, you can choose to continue fishing through the afternoon, or return to your room for a siesta to rest up for the evening hatch. We strongly suggest you take a siesta as the evening caddis hatch on the Baker River is something no angler would want to miss. Ultimately, the hours you fish at Green Baker Lodge are up to you. The lodge staff and guides will adjust the schedule to ensure you have the best trip possible.


Departure:

After breakfast and check out, you will make your way back to Balmaceda Airport.

Known for its depth and strong currents, the Baker provides any angler with the opportunity to catch rainbows and browns in the style they desire. From nymphing the gravel islands in the upper part of the river, to a frenetic caddis hatch in one of its large eddies, to casting large streamers to its deep, structured banks, aggressive trout lurk around every corner.

Target Species: brown and rainbow trout.
