Rio Gallegos Seatrout: Solid Adventures Las Buitreras Fly Fishing Lodge






The Rio Gallegos River
is nearly 300 kilometers in length and has
its origin in the Southern Andes from two pristine and very beautiful
streams, the Penitente and the Ruebens. Winding its way through the wild
Patagonian landscape, the Rio Gallegos emerges into the mountainous
landcape that encompasses the unique Las Buitreras beats, some 40kms
from the river mouth. The setting teems with birdlife, alongside large
numbers of rheas, silver foxes, horses, hares, flamingos and guanacos.



Solid Adventures' (Loop) Las Buitreras Lodge is home to the most
prolific beats on the Rio Gallegos, consisting of over 40kms of both
sides private water comprising over 50 named pools. The fly fishing is
exciting and varied with pools ranging from deep stony runs to cut banks
and streamy shingle flats. Relatively shallow, the fishing at Las
Buitreras makes for easy wading, and fast sinking lines create an
exciting and challenging fly fishing environment. It's this versatile
fishing combined with the visually inspiring mountainous outcrops that
makes this part of the Rio Gallegos quite simply one of the most
spectacular stretches of fly fishing water in Patagonia.



The Fish at Las Buitreras:


A fly fishing trip to Rio Gallegos River and the Las Buitreras Lodge
offers the adventurous angler the opportunity to pit his skills against
the explosive sea running trouts of Patagonia. The new local regulations
with catch & release, and better protection has definitely meant
more and bigger fish in the Rio Gallegos. These fish can reach sizes of
25-30lbs+ and will reward the angler with arm wrenching takes and
blistering runs, interspersed with regular acrobatic displays. Sometimes
explosive, always challenging, fly fishing for seatrout requires a
level of skill, stealth and understanding that can frustrate the average
salmon angler. However, armed with the correct knowledge to unlock
these secrets, the fly fishing on the Rio Gallegos and the Las Buitreras
beats can be immensely rewarding.



The Guides at Solid Adventures' Las Buitreras Lodge:


At the Las Buitreras Lodge, we pride ourselves on having some of the
best guides in the world, now with five full seasons of experience on
the Rio Gallegos River. Each is a very talented fly fisherman, and they
are some of the best casters and instructors in the world. All of our
fly fishing guides are friendly, speak good English, and keep a fly box
tucked away with their secret, deadly patterns they have created. The
fly fishing guides at Las Buitreras Lodge will ensure that you get the
very most out of your fly fishing trip on the Rio Gallegos.



The Las Buitreras Lodge:


Solid Adventures (Loop) has renovated an old house on the estancia and
furnished it with traditional “campo” style antiques. At the Las
Buitreras Lodge, the living is comfortable and clean. There are five
double rooms, two single rooms and a new annex with an indoor barbeque
and an extra room with three beds. In addition to the structural
renovation, the entire heating, water, electrical and gas systems at Las
Buitreras have been replaced. There is a wine cellar with a fantastic
selection from the Mendoza and San Juan regions of Argentina. The Las
Buitreras Lodge is also stocked with Cerveza Isenbeck, an outstanding
local beer. Outside, there is a huge veranda, a spacious courtyard that
is protected from the wind, and a large, fixed stone grill and terrace
for barbeques. House wine and beer is included in the rate at Las
Buitreras, but we do keep a wide selection of local wines not often
available elsewhere and guests are welcome to purchase these at a very
reasonable rate. No smoking inside the Las Buitreras Lodge.



Clothing:


Pack light, warm and windproof clothing on your trip to Jurassic Lake.
Most of the fly fishing occurs in the Argentine summer, but at parallel
53 south, the days can be chilly, particularly when the wind blows!
Those visiting Solid Adventures and the Las Buitreras Lodge in the late
season can count on cold mornings and evenings. Windbloc and Windstopper
fleece products are very good and when combined with breathable waders
and jacket, they offer superior protection that will keep you warm and
comfortable all day. Prepare to dress in layers, as the temperature
tends to shift at on the Rio Gallegos. And remember your sunscreen and
polarized sunglasses!
