best fly fishing in Patagonia. Located on the border of Los Alerces National Park, near the town of Cholila, there is
access to both the Carrileufu and Rivadavia Rivers. Los Alerces, founded in 1937, was one of the first national parks in
South America and boasts numerous mountain lakes and rivers with wild trout. You will float and wade in gin clear
water with strong trout populations. Situated in central Patagonia, about 45 degrees South, this area is known for its
beauty and extremely successful trout introduction. From the lodge, you and expert guides will explore the region, stalk
