Patagonia Region - February 7th, 2009
supplied by: Rumbo Patagon FISHING: Great
February 7, 2009: Fishing has been excelent the past week. Hoppers are everywhere this year, so the trout have been bulking up and wolfing down big hopper patterns. Beetles and ants are starting to appear, so large terrestrial patterns like the Chernobyl Ant and Fat Albert are working well. We've had some beatiful weather, making for a great lake fishing and the Simpson has been getting better by the day. Come on down and see for yourself!
Chile - March 14th, 2007
supplied by: Andes Outfitters RECORDED:74 °FISHING: Good
We fished 4 days near the town of Chaiten, Chile.
The highlight of the trip was the large number of large rainbow trout we caught on Lake Negro. Wherever you look at, there were fish jumping, feeding on adult Dragon flies. It was impresive to see these trout undeerwater follow the flight of the dragon flies and jump 6' off the air to catch them. We used mostly adult dragon fly immitations, Matapiojos and Chernobyl ants. I estimate I hooked more than 20 fish over 20". The key was to follow the dragon flies and let the fly drop within a foot or so.
WE also fished the mouth of the Yelcho River and caught a couple 20" + inch trout on dry flies but we had to leave the mouth and float the river because of high winds. The Yelcho has large brown and rainbow trout, steelhead, atlantic salmon, Chinook salmon, sea run browns, but we only caught a few fish in the 16" range. We tried to catch one of the hundreds of large rainbows the feed on top on the eddies, but they were extremely selective. WE hooked 3 large fish that broke our 4 and 5X tippets. But overall the fishing was regular for this great river.
WE finally moved to the Blanco River after a big rain. We expected to find large number of steelhead and Atlantic Salmon but when we got there after an hour horse back ride, we found the river dirty from the previous rainy day. I managed to hook and land two 5 lb steelhead, some 300 yds from the ocean and another angler hooked and lost two more about the same size. No signs of the 10 lb + fish we usually catch there. We met a fellow angler from Germany who said that he didn't catch anything today but showed us the picture of a 15 kg (30 lbs) Atlantic salmon he caught the day before PLUS two pictures of 15 lb Sierra Mackerel he caught on casting to the ocean where the Blanco river flows into the Pacific.
Manihuales - December 30th, 2003
supplied by: Rumbo Patagon RECORDED:65 °FISHING: Great
Joan and Ray Henderson, from Tulsa, Oklahoma, spent last week fishing with our Rumbo staff, and had the fishing trip of a lifetime!!! Before we started fishing Ray said that he'd never a caught a fish over 20 inches in his 15 years of fishing. When he was finished he had caught over 20 fish all over 20 inches, in one day! The Rio Ma˝ihuales really produced some beautiful fish that day. Ray hooked all those fish using a Chernobyl Ant casting towards the bank and drifting the fly under overhanging branches. Joan caught a very nice Brown (around 7 pounds) using a size 12 Parachute Adams. That Brown was five pounds bigger than any fish she had caught before visiting Rumbo Patagon. Definitely it was one of the better days on the river and I think the river will continue to produce great fish all season. It's a safe bet to say that Joan and Ray will return next year to fish our famed Ma˝ihuales. Come and down... the food is great, and the fishing is even better.
Aysen River - December 24th, 2003
supplied by: Rumbo Patagon RECORDED:55 °FISHING: Great
Our fishing season started just a month ago, the weather is getting warm and the trout are extremely aggressive. We usually fish dries most of the day, and many times the browns will leap 10 inches out of the water to take the flies on the Đirehuao or Simpson River. 6 to 8 pounds are the most frequent size, but if you try with a woolly, you can get a brown easily over 20 ponds on some lakes and rivers.
Fishing on the Aisen river last week proved most effective for a group from England where one guy caught five fish in five cast using a size 4 stimulator. The past few weeks have been great for dry fly fishing with top-surface action going on most of the day. Many of our clients have hooked some larger fish using leeches and wooly buggers.
The weather has been great and the food even better. See you down here!!!
