The lake, it is 12 km long, surrounded by natural forest all the way to the edge of the water. It offers a variety of beaches and wide bays for long and short casting.

It is surprising the amount of springs that flow into the lake.

Along the whole way you will have the view of the Mt. Fitz Roy and Vespiganani Glacier.

The options of different bays permits to choose the right spot depending on the wind conditions.

It is recommended to use fishing pole of 4/5, floating lines, long tappered leader of 9' for better results.

We use dry flies and nymphs, the ones that will work the best are the “prince”, “zug bug”, the “green machine” and to have fun the “chernobill”

There is good fishing in the lake. You can catch the rainbow trout or the brown trout of 1 to 2 kg average.

Big cliffs can be found in the lake shore, offering deepwater, a perfect spot to use sinking line that might give you a nice surprise.

After a great fishing day you will have a cozy and comfortable place with good wine, delicious meals and great company waiting for you.
