Fly Fishing Trip and Lodge Details:
Overlooking the scenic Chimehuin River, Chime Lodge (pronounced Chee-may) is ideally located with excellent access to the greatest diversity of trout water in Northern Patagonia. From the doorstep, access the Chimehuin for trophy trout, and less than 45 minutes away you will find miles and miles of trout rich waters including the Malleo, Collon Cura and Alumine Rivers or the large trout- producing Tromen, Epulafquen, Huechulafquen, Curruhe and Verde Lakes.
These are the waters that put Patagonia on the fly fishing map of the world. Each river or lake has its own character.
To top off your day you will be welcomed by the family-style atmosphere of the lodge and treated to excellent cooking and Argentina's renowned wines.
Brown, rainbow, brook trout and landlocked salmon thrive in these waters and readily take flies. Chime Lodge is located on the boundaries of Lanin National Park, that offers a majestic landscape throughout its almost 1.5 million acres and is dominated by Lanin Volcano, a peak of 11,300 feet adorned by snow and dry lava. The area has more than 20 trout rich lakes that feed a network of rivers that every year attract the attention of fly fishermen from all around the globe. The main river in the area is Alumine which receives water from many tributaries like the Pulmari, Quillen, Ruca Choroi, Malleo, Pilo lil and Catan lil. At the confluence of the Catan Lil, the Alumine is renamed Collon Cura which also receives water from the Chimehuin, Quemquemtreu and Caleufu Rivers until it drains into the Piedra del Aguila Reservoir.
