PRG South

Trevelin + Esquel Region



PRG’s Trevelin area programs are arguably the most sought after in all of Argentina.  The area surrounding Trevelin and Esquel offers over two-dozen rivers and the most diverse fishing in all of Argentina.  From temperate rainforest in Los Alerces National Park to the arid Patagonia steppe – all within striking distance of The Lodge at Trevelin – the area is a flyfisherman’s dream come true.  Since the waters, fishing, and scenery are so distinct, we recommend trying our signature “fish a different river daily” program to make the most of the experience.  Those that do will enjoy casting flies in every kind of water imaginable and catching a variety of strong wild trout.   The area’s rivers boast rainbows, browns, brook trout, and landlocked salmon in their waters.

There is such a wide selection of large rivers, small rivers, spring creeks and lakes in the Trevelin area that anglers can choose to wade or float daily.  Guests can also choose and enjoy as much or as little sight fishing, match the hatch dry fly fishing, terrestrial fishing, streamer fishing, and spot nymph fishing, as they wish. Novice as well as the most seasoned anglers will take pleasure in the sophistication of our outfitting and the diversity of the fishing.  Our talented guides specialize in fishing diverse waters and have the necessary flies and tackle required to change tactics daily, and since each professional guide has an assistant, walk-fishing guests will always enjoy a single guide.

PRG’s Lodge at Trevelin is located in the heart of one of the most spectacular mountain valleys in Patagonia.  From the lodge, guests can find productive trout streams literally in every direction.  We are certain that we offer the most diverse trout-fishing program in South America complimented with a spectacular lodge designed specifically for the purpose.

Week-long programs are standard at Trevelin, but trips as short as three days can easily be designed.  And for those that want to a completely custom itinerary, combining our programs at PRG North or Rio Pico with Trevelin is easy.

Trevelin + Esquel Program

Walk & Wade Experience

The Trevelin/Esquel region is incredibly rich in diversity when it comes to our fishable water. Our signature lodge is situated just south of the Los Alerces National Park. While most fishing in the park is ideal for float fishing, we do have an incredible amount of wade fishing on the eastern side of Trevelin. Spring creeks such as the Gualjaina and Arroyo Pescado are some of our guests favorites for dry fly fishing and huge numbers of fish. We always make sure to rest our water so that guests are fishing for trout that have not had pressure for over two weeks. For a detailed description of our rivers in the Trevelin/Esquel region, please visit our Rivers page.

Float Fishing Experience

This fly fishing program is home base to some of the best float fishing in Patagonia. Only a 25 minute drive, our easiest float by far is the Rio Grande. This is a larger, slower moving river that offers plenty of structure and ample opportunity to catch a ton of nice trout. Without a doubt, our highlight here at Trevelin is our access to Los Alerces National Park. While there are a few walk & wade situations, we almost exclusively float the glacial fed lakes and rivers within the park. Click here to learn about the rivers we fish.
