Flyfishing Experience

There is nothing quite like the thrill of coaxing wild brook trout from a high Andean river, watched by condor and surrounded by snowey peaks. Flyfishing in Mendoza is the perfect opportunity to escape the crowds and enjoy pristine nature in all its glory.
 
Fishing is possible throughout the year and ranges from fast flowing mountain creeks to wide, meandering rivers.  There is also some excellent lake fishing.
 
We offer two categories of fly fishing:
 
1. Flyfishing Experience - Fish on a private river in a rustic mountain estancia with English speaking guide, 4X4 transport, delicious food and horseback riding (optional). See below for more info.
 
2. Simply Flyfishing - For those who simply want to fish and do not require an English speaking guide or riverside lunch. Click here for more info.
 
 
 
Flyfishing Experience at an Andean Ranch
 
Valle de Uco is a narrow fertile plain 80km soutwest of Mendoza city. Nestled between the low Pre-Cordillera and the towering blunted peaks of the Cordon del Plata, it is a high altitude zone producing excellent grapes, pears and peaches. It also produces a wily, intelligent querulous trout. The valley is particularly stunning at daybreak when the snow-capped peaks reflect the bright orange and pink of the rising sun. 

 

Flyfishing in Mendoza

 

 

 

The main draw here is the crystal waters - fast moving streams that gushes over brown stones and through narrow creeks. 

 

You will be collected at 8.30am in Mendoza after which we will drive south for two hours until we reach Valle de Uco, in the foothills of the Andes at an elevation of 2000m above sea level. We stop for a coffee at the riverside before you set off for an exhilarating day fishing.

 

The day will be spent fly fishing in nearby mountain steams. We follow the stream by foot for 30 minutes (also possible by horseback if requested in advance), accompanied by your guide who knows the best fly fishing spots. Lunch is a riverside asado (Argentine bbq), accompanied by fresh salad, the finest meat and excellent wines. By early evening the river reveals itself as teeming with rainbow trout. Return to Mendoza at 6pm.

Please note that the river is narrow and fast moving. Waders are not required as you fish from the bank but you will get wet. Therefore please wear sturdy, tight fitting shoes that dry easy. We suggest you take a spare dry pair to change into at the end of the day. Please wear long pants and long sleeved shirts for protection against the sun and scratching.
