Among the Eleven Experience lodges in the Southern Hemisphere is Martín Pescardor in Chile, from which we’ve just received this end of season round up:

Conditions this season provided guests with good opportunities to target fish just the way they wanted—twitching dry flies on the lakes, smacking streamers along drop offs or into tight pockets along the river banks, and dropping nymphs off the back of oversized chubbies in the rivers and lakes of the region.

It took a bit for the rivers to settle into the desired levels, which made things challenging out of the gates, but once the weather settled down, the fishing turned on. Anglers fished for rainbows gorging on baitballs and sight fished with dries. Browns inhaled dragonflies and attacked streamers. Top flies were olive and black streamers, girdle bugs, and a variety of terrestrials on the surface. All in all, the season was filled with productive fishing, lots of smiles, an immersive cultural experience, and lifetime stories to share with friends and family.

We also had the pleasure of welcoming guests for a week at both Martín Pescador Lodge and Rio Palena Lodge this year. This made for a mouth watering excursion with an incredible amount of water and scenery and nonstop action and memories.

With some reconnaissance missions field tested by the guides this season, there will be some exciting additions for 24/25. We knew many of these additional blue water marks found on a map had fish, but and now the challenge of getting to them through a dense landscape has been solved.
