Aurelia Lodge Rio Grande, Argentina
Sea trout fishing Rio Grande Argentina TDF, Aurelia Lodge.
Aurelia Lodge offers anglers the opportunity to fish some eight miles of the Rio Grande and 15 miles of the Rio Menendez. The fishing is limited to just six rods per week and anglers can enjoy a day on the river before returning to the comforts of the warm, welcoming lodge in the evening.
The finest sea trout fishing in the world…
The fishing at Aurelia is on the prime middle reaches of the Rio Grande and is located immediately above Kau Tapen and Estancia Maria Behety. The sea trout average close to 10lb and can reach weights in excess of 30lb. The lodge has eight miles of fly fishing on both banks of the Rio Grande plus some 15 miles double bank fishing on the Rio Menendez. With the limited number of rods, the water is well rested during the day. Both rivers offer easy wading, with the riverbed being mainly fine gravel.
Following the morning session anglers usually return to the lodge for lunch, followed by a siesta. The afternoon fishing session starts in mid-afternoon to capitalise on the magical dusk fishing period.
Homely, comfortable and welcoming lodge environment awaits
Aurelia Lodge comfortably accommodates four guests in single, en-suite bedrooms. The estancia house was recently fully renovated and converted into the current fishing lodge. Guests enjoy spacious rooms, large fully appointed private bathrooms, a warm and welcoming reception area, and a comfortable dining room with great views. There is also a small tackle shop, a separate asado (traditional Argentine barbecue) room, wader room and lounge.
Non-fishing guests are welcome at Aurelia and there are plenty of other outdoor activities available including horseback riding, wildlife and birding excursions.
