Sport Fishing

Wade into the clear water, listen to the echoing birdsong and enjoy a magical change in the atmosphere from the moment you cast your first line. Considered as one of the oldest sports in the world and renowned as an effective therapy for stress, fishing in Chile is a veritable balm for the soul.

Enjoy the early morning solitude in calm northern coves, go deep into the exuberant forests of the south, or relax on a boat in the splendor of the lake district. Practice and perfect your technique, whether it be fly fishing, trolling, drifting or all three. You can fish all year round in Chile and you’ll find an astonishingly wide variety of species living in its waters.

In Patagonia, you’ll find luxury lodges located on the very shores of mighty rivers like the Simpson and Baker. Try your luck in their many pools and enjoy a tussle with the salmon swimming upstream to spawn.

For a real taste of adventure, hire a seaplane to take you into truly virgin territory, like Tierra del Fuego’s Grande river. Dare to try for one of the famed giant brown trout, a species which can weigh over 15 kilos – a real trophy for the expert fisherman. The generally accepted practice is catch-and-release to preserve the species and environmental balance.
