Guests of PRG North enjoy the same signature service, state-of-the-art equipment and professional guides as our PRG Lodge at Trevelin operation but from the classic large estancias around San Martin and Junin de los Andes in northern Patagonia. These estancias, or large working ranches, offer PRG and their guests first-class lodging, delicious food and wonderful service as well as private access to some of northern Patagonia’s best waters. It is the best way to get a unique glimpse into Argentine lifestyle and culture at its best.
Incredible rivers such as the Chimehuín, Aluminé, Collón Cura, Malleo, Traful and the Filo Hua Hum offer guests some of the finest dry flyfishing in all of South America. Hatches are prevalent, including world-renowned minnow runs, pancora crabs, giant yellow mayflies and willow worms as well as all the classic mayfly and caddis hatches similar to the ones in the Western US. Miles and miles of productive rivers and wide-open spaces await, and guests can choose to float and fish from PRG North’s RO drift boats or wade on private access. Drives can be as short as five minutes and guests can often return to the lodge for lunch and a short break before fishing the evening hatch. Like all of PRG’s programs, PRG North provides the finest equipment, gear, tackle, guides, assistant guides and service that have set us apart for more than ten years.
PRG North guests normally stay on beautiful Argentine estancias such as San Huberto, Huechahue, Cerro de los Pinos and Quemquemtreu. These large estancias all have fishing lodges on site and offer guests a distinct experience while upholding a common commitment to high standards in terms of accommodation, gastronomy and service in addition to offering miles of private access to area rivers. Due to the unique nature of each estancia, we recommend an itinerary that combines at least two or three different locales to get the most out of your visit. For those who are a little more adventurous, PRG North offers comfortable multi-day camping trips on wilderness rivers, which are unique experiences in and of themselves.
