Sea Trout fishing Rio Irigoyen Argentina
It is no secret that Tierra del Fuego, the Southernmost tip of South America, is home to some of the largest sea run trout in the world. It is also well known that fly fishing for them involves wading wide rivers with a double handed rod on the legendary Rio Gallegos and Rio Grande. However, the Irigoyen River offers something completely different, and is best fished a single hander. It’s a much smaller river system and is tree-lined, which means that it gets great protection from the wind.
Most of the river is set against a beautiful background of Antarctic and Lenga Beech trees, until, near the coast, it emerges from this sheltered forest into the barren coastal plain for a couple of kilometres. Both the Irigoyen and its main tributary, the Malaguena, offer miles of sheltered fishing. These beautiful rivers offer the rare opportunity of hooking 15lb plus fish on single handed rods on much of their run. It is also nice to know that this is also totally exclusive fishing. These rivers will not be fished by anyone else while you are there.
Beautifully appointed cabins
The capacity is a maximum of four rods per week. Accommodation comprises of beautifully appointed rooms, with spacious en-suite bathrooms. All rooms have central heating. The wading room is heated by a log burning stove.
Meals are served in a separate cabin, equipped with sofas, a well stocked bar and Wi-Fi internet access. The food is of the highest order, as is the excellent selection of Argentine wines. Travel from pool to pool is made in trucks and Argo amphibious vehicles. The season runs from December to April.
The Rio Irigoyen River
The Rio Irigoyen flows into the ocean some 180km south of Rio Grande, winding its way through the lower climbs of the Andes, sheltering anglers from the often vicious winds prevalent on the Rio Grande. The nearest town is Tolhuin.
