Mendoza Fly Fishing offers wild trout in mountain streams. Perfect for beginners
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. Fly fishing in Mendoza is the perfect opportunity to escape the crowds and enjoy pristine nature in all its glory. Fishing is possible throughout the year but the best months are from September to April. The rivers are two hours drive from the city and are mostly fast flowing mountain creeks in the high sierras.
You will be collected at 8 am in Mendoza after which we will drive south for two hours until we reach La Carrera, a mountain road which connects Valle de Uco with the foothills of the Andes at an elevation of 2000m above sea level.
The day will be spent fly fishing at an Andean ranch with a private river. 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. Here the casting technique is very simple and easy to learn. Full instruction is given. It is not unusual for beginners to catch up to 20 trout. Lunch is a riverside asado (Argentine bbq), accompanied by fresh salad, the finest meat and excellent wines. Return to Mendoza at 6pm.
