Patagonia is one of the world’s foremost destinations for fly fishing. Home to freshwater rivers, open seas and vast lakes, the region is a perfect spot for both expert fly fishers and those wanting to try the sport for the first time. Patagonia fly fishing extends all the way down from the top of Aysen down to the bottom of Magallanes at the southern tip of Patagonia. Coyhaique on the Carretera Austral in Aysen is especially famous for fly fishing.
Further south close to Puerto Natales there are also many fly fishing opportunities. Torres del Paine National Park, the biggest attraction in Chilean Patagonia, is just under two hours away from Puerto Natales and some of southern Chile’s finest rivers for fly fishing including Baguales river and Serrano river. Surrounded by mountains and Patagonian scenery, these rivers are ideal for soaking up the scenery while practicing the relaxing sport of fly fishing.
Serrano river, whose source is Del Toro lake on the southern boundary of Torres del Paine National Park, is home to giant Chinook salmon which can weigh up to 35kg from June to December! Brown trout, sea trout and rainbow trout can also be found in Serrano river in Chilean Patagonia, as well as in nearby Nutria river.
