Flyfishing

Flyfishing

Traditionally, we are fishing for our own consumption using some sort of cylindrical tin.

But: for all friends of flyfishing there are a lot of possibilities around.

The Río Norte / Exploradores and Lago Bayo (2 km. from the guesthouse) has brown trouts and rainbow trouts (til 45 cm.).

In the lake General Carrera yoy can find also salmon trouts (up to  6 kg.). Guided fishing trips by boat in the lake are offered starting in Pto. Río Tranquilo.

The huge Pacific king-salmon is swimming up Río Exploradores in February up to Río Huemul (km. 53) where it spawns (only catch and release).

If our house guests would like to enjoy a trout for dinner, they could catch the fish themselves in the  Laguna Katrín close to the hostel and Katrin herself will prepare the fish for you.

For those who enjoy  flyfishing during some or all of their holidays it is recommended to buy a fishing licence in the regional capital of Coyhaique.
