Fishing and Marine Life in Chilean Patagonia

See the Chilean Patagonia Guide ›
Chile's insider take:

The native salmon and introduced trout in Patagonia's rivers and lakes draw the world's most renowned and avid anglers. Dozens of exclusive estancias offer visitors the chance to troll, fly-fish, and spin in transparent, ice-cold water. Some of the best lodges, including Yelcho en la Patagonia (, Isla Monita Fishing Lodge (, and El Yungue Lodge (, are mostly clustered around Lago Yelcho and its tributaries, where anglers have landed record-breaking salmon. Chile's Pacific coastal waters are also bursting with life: Bottlenose dolphins, killer whales, Magellanic penguins, and sea lions are all to be found. Sea voyages, including the four-day Navimag ferry from Puerto Montt to Puerto Natales (, offer an excellent way to commune with nature while getting around; shorter expeditions by yacht or sea kayak offer the only practicable way to explore Chile's southern archipelago.
