To reach the fishing locations from the lodge takes typically somewhere between thirty minutes to an hour. Transport is by 4WD truck to most areas, although on some rivers they also use jet-boats and inflatables.
Fly fishing for Brown and Rainbow Trout is on several rivers in the region, some are private and some are public water. The Rio Simpson is a freestone river with great Caddis and Mayfly hatches. Browns and Rainbow Trout of up to 22 inches are not unsual. Bigger Trout are caught each season. There are also King Salmon that run the river from January onwards. These are up towards the 40+ lbs.
Other rivers you fish include the Rio Paloma, Azul, Desague. These are mostly Brown Trout freestone rivers where fish can be taken on dry fly or streamers. Plus, the Emperador, Guillermo, Manihuales and Toqui Boca De Leon to mention just a few of these free flowing crystal waters. All holding either Rainbow and Browns up to 22 inches with bigger Trophy Trout hiding away. All waiting to take your dry fly!
All the guides are seasoned professionals and bi-lingual with good English. They know these rivers very well. Guests will usually enjoy a mix of fishing methods during their stay with jet-boat days, raft float days and walking and wading days.
There is a tackle shop and some equipment is available at the lodge, however, we would suggest that all anglers take their own gear and equipment or if wishing to travel light check with the loge to ensure they have what you need.
Cinco Rios offer some of the finest river Trout fishing (with some Pacific Salmon) in the world with the Andes as a backdrop and unbeliveable scenery.
