Carrileufu River Lodge



Call Orvis Adventures at 800-547-4322 for dates and pricing.

Carrileufu River Lodge is situated in the middle of a complex network of lakes and rivers located in a region of Patagonia between the snowcapped Andes and the arid steppes of Chubut Province. This area provides anglers with ideal access to some of the best fly fishing for trout in Patagonia. Located on the border of Los Alerces National Park, near the town of Cholila, there is access to both the Carrileufu and Rivadavia Rivers. Los Alerces, founded in 1937, was one of the first national parks in South America and boasts numerous mountain lakes and rivers with wild trout. You will float and wade in gin clear water with strong trout populations. Situated in central Patagonia, about 45 degrees South, this area is known for its beauty and extremely successful trout introduction. From the lodge, you and expert guides will explore the region, stalk large brown trout on crystal-clear spring creeks, float the world-famous Rio Rivadavia, fish the nearby Carrileufu, or even take a three-day wilderness float on the seldom-fished, remote, Rio Chubut.


  • Float and wade fish in freestone rivers, spring creeks, gin-clear lakes and the world-famous Rio Rivadavia.
  • Experience an optional 3-day wilderness float on the rarely-fished Rio Chubut.
  • Comfortable accommodations in a scenic mountain valley overlooking the Tres Picos.

Your Hosts

Meet your hosts, Dave and Amelia Jensen

On top of their lifetimes spent fly fishing, over a decade of travel has proven Dave and Amelia Jensen some of the finest anglers out there. Back home in Alberta, Canada, they have guided trout streams for the past 20 years: hatch chasing, sight-fishing, streamer fishing—they’ve done it all! For the past 11 years, they have also spent months at a time in New Zealand stalking browns and bows. Mixed in, they owned and published the magazine Alberta Fishing Guide and operated a multiple award winning, Orvis Endorsed Expedition in the remote Canadian Rockies.

Their passion to share the wonders of the world of fly fishing is part of who they are, and we are grateful to have Dave and Amelia for a third year of producing Orvis’ Advanced Tactics “Master-Class Monday” video series. They also contribute photos and videos to additional magazines, websites, and TV shows. Be sure to check out their Instagram feed @jensenflyfishing to catch up on some of their favorite content. They can’t wait to get out on the water with you soon!
