Cameron Lodge (TDF – Rio Grande), Chile

Cameron Lodge; sea trout fishing Rio Grande, TDF, Chile

Cameron Lodge is a comfortable estancia offering an unforgettable experience fishing for sea trout and resident trout on the famous Rio Grande. 

Superb sea trout fishing on the Rio Grande

Fishing on the Chilean side of Tierra del Fuego offers huge benefits and adds a whole new dimension to our standalone sea trout packages on the Argentinean side. Firstly, the law changes as you venture over the border, which opens up the Grande to night-time sea trout fishing, with explosive results. Secondly, the river has a lot of character on these reaches, and the terrain becomes a lot hillier, offering greater protection from the wind. Further to that, the river runs clearer, and fishing is almost always done on floating lines.

In addition, the river does not get affected as heavily from spates on the Chilean side, where a bad spate could put a stop to your fishing on the Argentine side – indeed, should the river get really high the Chilean side is able to draw on some contingencies and explore other waterways or lake systems, rather than losing out on your fishing, making it a safer bet for many.

Whilst at the lodge, which has no set itinerary allowing you to pick and choose as the conditions dictate, you have access to some lakes that have brown trout, rainbow trout, sea trout and brook-char present. The lodge also has access to other river systems, some of which are rarely affected by rain etc. as they drain from lakes. 

A Friendly Comfortable Environment

Cameron Lodge (Estancia Cameron) offers a very friendly and intimate environment from which to enjoy and experience Tierra Del Fuego. From the comfortable single en-suite rooms through to bank side lunches, hearty evening meals, and breakfasts that really fill you up for the day ahead. There’s never a dull day with the staff at the lodge, who really give the finishing touch to the whole experience.

At present the majority of the staff and guides at the lodge are Chilean, many born and raised in the area with a wealth of information about the history, local area, and wildlife.  

A secret on the Rio Grande

Estancia Cameron was founded in 1904 and sits in 97,000 hectares which is made up of forests, rivers, lakes and grasslands.  Currently it maintains about 40,000 sheep and 1,000 cattle. Guests can arrive through Chile or Argentina.  If coming from Chile, there are flights from Santiago to Punta Arenas from which it is a six hour drive to the lodge.  It is possible to fly from Puenta Arenas to Porvenir in Tierra del Fuego which shortens the drive to the lodge to two and a half hours. If coming from Argentina there are flights to Rio Grande which is a two hour drive to the lodge or Ushuaia which is four hours from the lodge.
