Chile

chile-1Journey to summer south of the Equator (during winter in the U.S.) for diverse trout fishing in a beautiful, serene, and welcoming country. In addition to dry-fly fishing for wild trout, Chile has mountain peaks higher than the Rockies as well as plant and animal species found nowhere else on the planet, which makes it both different and special.

Futa Lodge, located on the Futaleufú River, has clear waters teeming with browns and rainbows. And first class accommodations and services provided by the lodge and its staff make this an adventure you’ll remember for a lifetime. The lodge accommodates up to eight guests (six anglers) and offers excellent Chilean wines and cuisine.

As you fish for rainbow and brown trout, you’ll discover prehistoric rainforests and spectacular waterfalls. If you’re really thirsting for adventure, you can visit our Argentine lodges in the same trip—no flights required, just a beautiful drive over the Andes.

Most anglers come to Chile to fish for trout. European settlers introduced browns and rainbows and a third species, brook trout, early in the twentieth century. The techniques used to fish for Chilean trout are similar to those used in the American West, since their diets are similar. You don’t need any special skills—just a love for fishing.
