Journey where few anglers have gone before
“I doubt I went more than 10 minutes without catching a fish all day.” – C. Olsen Immerse yourself in a fishing experience most anglers only dream about. Lifelong devotees to fly fishing will discover an unparalleled opportunity for large trout at Estancia La Limay, and less experienced anglers will be spoiled right off the bat. Our experienced guides are eager to show you pristine waters thriving with unpressured fish that are ready to attack your fly. We’re excited to share the pinnacle of world-class fishing on the multiple braided channels of the Rio Limay Medio.
The Rio Limay Medio (the Middle Limay River) is one of Patagonia’s most prolific trout streams, particularly for trophy fish. This section of river is the only tailwater in Northern Patagonia, featuring cool, stable releases which create a rich habitat for healthy resident and migratory Rainbow and German Brown trout that average 20 inches or more. And yes, 30+ inch monsters actually live here too.

A Fly Fishermanâ€™s Dream THE FISHING PROGRAM
Gold Label Club
Our unique location on the lower section of the Limay Medio gives our guests exclusive access to a world-class fishery for Rainbow trout and also offers a chance for a giant German Brown. There are no public access points to the river on or near our ranch, nor are there any easy access points off the river downstream. The result is privacy and solitude.
Land a 26+ inch trout to earn your spot in this exclusive club of La Limay.
Guests also have the opportunity to fish the upper sections of the Limay Medio, below the Pichi Picun Leufu Dam. The Limay Medio is a large river and its structure varies in the many different channels, from riffles and deep pools to faster runs and tail-outs. Bottom lineâ€Ś your guide will put you on the section of river fishing best for each day of your stay. Our La Limay fishing guides are all native Argentine and work exclusively for us. They are all English-speaking and have grown up fishing the waters of the Limay Medio River system.
Boats, Tackle & Gear We have custom-built drift boats, as well as NRS rafts & catarafts in order to provide the perfect boat for the many different channels and water types encountered on the Limay Medio. We use 6 and 7 weight rods with both floating and sinking lines. These rod weights are needed to handle the size, strength and aggressiveness of the trout here. Dry flies (small and large patterns), nymphs and streamers are all productive throughout the season. *Fishing equipment is included at no additonal cost*
