Atlantic Steelhead and Sea-Run Brown Trout in Argentine Patagonia
For serious spey anglers that like chasing a variety of big, challenging sea-run fish, we created a custom itinerary that seamlessly pairs two totally unique southern-mainland Argentine destinations. The first week guests will fish for large, wary sea trout on the gorgeous and essentially private Rio Gallegos. Then, anglers have the opportunity to chase Atlantic steelhead on the massive and totally unique Rio Santa Cruz. There is nowhere else on the planet where anglers can chase these two species of anadromous fish in back to back weeks on essentially adjoining systems. On this trip guests will visit the friendly, fun Las Buitreras Lodge on the pristine and gentle Rio Gallegos and then transfer three hours by vehicle to the unassuming four-person Los Plateados Lodge located on the banks of the mighty Rio Santa Cruz.
