Quillen is a medium to small sized river, with beautiful structure.

Weed beds flats, riffles, cut banks with deep pools provide a variety of water that combined with easy wading (mostly sand bottoms) makes it just perfect.

Anglers can expect 1 to 3 pounds rainbows and browns (plus the chance to land trophy browns that migrate in the river system usually during fall).

This water is ONLY WADE FISHING and catch and release river.

The Malalco River is a pristine mountain stream that borns deep in the Andes, inside the Lanin National Park. The lower section of it runs through Estancia Rio Quillen, providing private access to it.

For those who like mountain hikes and extra effort to access to some amazing sight fishing, the Malalco would be a dream come true!

The ideal time to fish it igoes from mid November until late December. (late spring - early summer).

Rio Malalco

Deep in a unique native tree forest, the Malalco river does not get to see many anglers. It's all about hunting for nice trout that are holding in some beautiful pools and small pockets.
