The eighth largest country in the world and the second largest country in South America, Argentina has a rich history and many diverse cultures. The capital is Buenos Aires, home to 2.89 million people, and the country’s official language is Spanish. Argentina is known the world over for its World Cup champion soccer teams, incredible wine and beef, and the breathtaking, snowcapped Andes Mountains, which divide Argentina from Chile, its neighbor to the west. Argentina and Chile also share Patagonia, which is a vast and sparsely populated region located at the southern end of South America. One of the most beautiful and enchanting regions in the world, Argentine Patagonia features incredible mountainous landscapes and boasts an astounding array of flora and fauna.
The Patagonian region of Argentina is also home to some of the most impressive trout streams and rivers on the planet. We have spent years wade fishing and float fishing every stretch of sparkling water we could find in this wonderful land, and with our partner operation, Andes Drifters, we have developed what is by far the best fly-fishing travel program in Argentina.
The following is an overview of the best fishing we have found in Argentine Patagonia. If you have any questions about traveling to the region, give us a call toll-free at 888-861-0111 and talk with Kevin Howell or Jeff Furman, our Argentina travel specialists.
San Martin de los Andes Area
The northern Patagonia region around the towns of Junín and San Martin de los Andes has the greatest variety of trout streams in Argentina. You can fish 15 rivers and 20 lakes within a two-hour radius of San Martin de los Andes. And although the area contains all of the country’s famous trout waters, it is sparsely populated, allowing you to find peaceful solitude.
Davidson River Outfitters offers custom-tailored fishing packages that allow you to fish the very best waters in ways that match your preferences perfectly. From long days fishing to evenings spent enjoying splendid dinners and relaxing at the lodge, you’ll experience the very best of Patagonia with us.
We have built our reputation on service and providing first class individualized customer service. You will want for nothing - guaranteed.
