Rio Gallegos Sea Trout
Estancia Carlota, Argentina
with host Jeff Bright

 

THE WORLD'S LARGEST SEA TROUT — sea-run browns — are found in the far reaches of South America's Patagonia region. Among the most renowned of these rivers is Argentina's Rio Gallegos. An angler's paradise, the Gallegos features broad, generally shallow pools that reward good casts and an actively presented fly. Not only does the river host a strong run of sea trout averaging 6 to 15 pounds, with the occasional larger fish in the mix, it also offers a robust population of resident browns ... In association with our friends at Salmon Junkies we are excited to experience this new option on the Gallegos, which will operate as a sister program to fishing at Estancia El Rincon.

Estancia Carlota

 

Encompassing 100,000 acres in the lower third of the famous Rio Gallegos watershed and only one hour’s drive from Rio Gallegos Airport, Estancia Carlota is located between

Estancia El Rincon and Estancia Bella Vista upstream and Estancia Las Buitreras downstream. Guests at Carlota have access to 20+ km of highly desirable water on the Gallegos. Just a short drive from the lodge, Carlota's private double-bank beats include an attractive selection of classic holding pools for migrating sea trout. Resident brown trout are here, as well, but typically efforts are concentrated on the sea trout populating the river on their migration upstream.
