After being picked up at your hotel/accommodation in the center of Bariloche, let yourself be driven along the Limay River on a comfortable private vehicle.
Most important river in the National Park, big water are flowing out of the huge Nahuel Huapi Lake from its eastern end about 17 km (11 miles) from the city, winding through dry and rocky mesas spotted with pine forests and offering wonderful scenery and great weather. Rainbow and brown trout inhabit the Limay River, as well as some Patagonian perch. Offering countless opportunities for fishermen, the Limay River is perfect for those who want to experience fishing in the Andes.
From November through March, the dry fly possibilities abound, and during the last month of the season, in April, the amazing big trout migrate to the river from the lake.
Five different sections on the river are available to choose from, each about 10 miles long. Extremely clear waters, beautiful scenery and great fishing make this floating trip something truly unforgettable.
Arriving at the boarding spot along the Limay River, you will be explained the fishing technics that you will have chosen at time of booking:
Fly-fishing: Using a special weighted line, “dressed” hooks that imitate insects, minnow, shrimp, are cast using various techniques. This undoubtedly requires some practice and patience, only to achieve making a good cast. However, fly-fishing has been popular around the world for a very long time and is becoming more so daily. Countless experienced fishermen arrive in Patagonia every year from many countries to ply their craft in these pristine, unpopulated fishing spots, as do novice casters eager to hone their skills.
Spinning: This technique involves casting artificial lures, like spoons or spinners, using an appropriate rod and reel. For fishing from the shore or from boats. We recommend using ultra-light equipment and lures, if possible, with single barbless hooks.
Then, start your floating trip, navigate on the Limay River and fish, enjoying the best fishing places Rio Limay has to offer.
Always accompanied by your guide, learn about the history of the Bariloche`s region and the best fishing options as well as the local fauna.
After spending the morning or afternoon drifting and fishing, join shore, where our assistants will be waiting for you in order for you to take you back to your hotel.
The fishing season starts on November 1st and ends on May 1st every year, all around the National Park. However, for off season fishing, lakes Nahuel Huapi, Gutiérrez and Mascardi are open during May and October, and Moreno lake is open the whole year round for all the fishing modalities.
