San Martin de Los Andes

The northern Patagonia region around the towns of Junín and San Martin de los Andes has the largest variety of trout streams in Argentina. You can fish 15 rivers and 20 lakes within a two-hour radius of San Martin de los Andes. And although the area contains all of the country’s famous trout waters, it is sparsely populated. You can find peaceful solitude here.

 

Southern Cross Outfitters custom-tailored fishing packages will allow you to fish the very best waters in ways that match your preferences perfectly. From long days fishing to evenings enjoying splendid dinners and relaxation at the lodge, you’ll experience the very best of Patagonia with us.

 

DESTINATIONS

MALLEO RIVER

Its pure and crystalline waters proceed from lake Tromen which is replenished with the melting snow from the Lanin Volcanoe (3747mts). While fishing, one can enjoy the view of this imposing volcanoe which separates us from Chile. One also comes across a unique forest of pines called Araucarias (Puzzle monkey trees), only to be found here. The fishing ground is in the Mapuche Indian Reservation. There are plenty of brown and rainbow trout which can weigh up to 5 Lb.
