The Malleo River and dry fly fishing.....


The Malleo River is synonymous of "Dry Fly Action", that is why people from all over the World know about it.

Casting dry flies to actively feeding browns and rainbows has become a passion hard to control to many of our guests that season after season come back looking for a new challenge.

The Malleo runs smoothly through a wide valley changing its speed and structure slowly through its way down to the Alumine River. The upper part fished from San Huberto, provides ideal conditions to be considered unique in the area.

I wouldn't hesitate to say that this magnificent river provides the best structure and predictable hatches in the entire Patagonia Argentina. With very easy wading bottoms, cut-banks, small rock areas, weed-beds, some shallow riffles, deep pools, slow curves... what can I say, just perfect!

The Malleo River is and ONLY WADING river!

The Malleo river does not offer just incredible fly fishing. It combines all the perfect conditions and characteristics that makes a river an amazing "dry fly and sight fishing paradise”.
Tranquil, crystal clear waters and easy-to-walk bottoms formed by small boulders, gravel and volcanic sand areas which makes wading very easy in most of the sections.
Weed beds and cut banks provide the ideal structure for good size trout, that in many cases go over 20 inches.
Shady and cool areas where the banks are covered by willow trees provide the required habitat to keep good hatches around and shelter for those windy days in early season.
Predictable hatches through most of the season always help to plan the best fishing hours Different hatches might occur at the same time, and matching the hatch is essential. I can be great fun!
The access to the river is always easy and fast. Internal roads are in great shape and allow us to get very close to the fishing areas.
At lunch time, we can go back to the lodge or just pull the table and chairs out, and enjoy a great picnic on the river bank.
"Lot's of action on light tackle gear" we suggest 3,4 and 5 wt rods to fish the Malleo and Huaca Mamuil Spring Creek
San Huberto, the Lanin Volcano and the Malleo river .......... "a breathtaking experience"
