The Patagonian Basecamp
Deep within the seldom visited Aysen Provence of Chilean Patagonia, there is a special lodge perfectly suited to adventuresome anglers that take pride and pleasure in fishing off the beaten path. Marcel and Carolina Sijnesael built their dream lodge on the banks of the Rio Palena for all the right reasons; the main one being they wanted to show their guests the beauty and bounty of Patagonia without having to see other anglers. Here anglers will fish a wide range of systems from rafts and jetboats targeting wild rainbows and browns. Most of the fish will range from 14 to 20 inches with, 20-plus inch fish caught daily, 24-plus inch fish caught weekly, and a few fish over 30 inches netted each season. Marcel prides himself on having created a unique experience that incorporates ultra-comfortable overnight trips at established and well-appointed riverside out-camps into the lodge program, making for a most memorable adventure.
