Take Your Travel Experience Further: The Hosted Trip Difference Unparalleled Service and Knowledge Every Step of the Way

Dear Traveler, We cannot count how many times we have been to Argentina. It’s a beautiful country with a lot of life, culture, and also great fishing! Every time we have another trip the excitement always comes back. We are overwhelmed with the beautiful landscapes when we first get off the plane. This feeling only rapidly magnifies once we step foot at Laguna Verde. We had an incredible first trip to Laguna Verde last year and we couldn’t be more thrilled you decided to join us for this upcoming trip. Once you sink your waders in the water you’ll never want to leave. The size of these rainbow trout sure do backup the Jurassic Lake name. There have been plenty of articles and stories to come out of Jurassic Lake because of the shear amount of large fish. We will be there to guide you in the right direction so you can have some incredible stories of your own for family and friends. The stories won’t stop there. You’ll be telling everyone about how incredible this lodge is. Laguna Verde is the perfect destination for this hosted trip. Fishing for behemoth rainbow trout never gets old on Jurassic Lake. When you’re not on the water you will be taken away by the sunrises and sunsets on the marsh, fine Malbec wine, and Argentine asados. Come join us on this incredible journey to Argentina Sincerely,

Barry & Cathy Beck

What to Expect • At Estancia Laguna Verde, catch a trout of a lifetime with miles of secluded shoreline of the famous Lago Strobel (aka Jurassic Lake). • Fish one of the many smaller lakes in the ranch for big trout. • When not on the water, be taken away by the sunrises and sunsets, fine Argentine wines and asados.

About the Lodges

Laguna Verde: The brontosaurus of rainbow trout inhabit the lakes and rivers of Estancia Laguna Verde and if you like to hunt for the big ones there is no better spot on earth. Fishing here in early and late season allow for behemoths New Zealand-style in the Barrancoso River and in the famous lake. Midseason fishing will find you wading the shallow bays and inlets for these cruising leviathans. Retire to the relaxed lodge; courteous staff and hearty meals rounding out this unique fishing adventure in this vast lonely region of Patagonia.
