On the barren expanse of the Patagonian Steppe, not far from the Argentine mountain hub of El Calafate in Southern Patagonia, a fly fishing miracle is unfolding before us in real time. Why is it only coming to light now, when the rivers and lakes in question have been there for thousands of years? Because only recently have wild trout been introduced into these unique scud-rich ecosystems; ecosystems that miraculously grow trout bigger, fatter and faster than any region we have seen. Today Jurassic Lake Lodge, Capitan Lodge, and Eagle Valley Lodge are living testament to the biological anomaly that has made the southern-most province on the Argentine mainland home to the most productive and accessible trophy rainbow trout fisheries in the world today.
