The middle section of the world renowned Limay River has been a remote and isolate destination for years, and today we have a perfect way to enjoy fishing it. The "middle" Limay river is one of the most productive and big fish rivers in the area.
The exclusive and brand new Limay River Lodge has been designed based on all the needs and details a perfect fishing lodge should have.
The lodge offers 7 double bedrooms, each one with a private bathroom, a living room, a dining room, outdoor fireplace and first class service.
It is a true luxury eco lodge, and the first (and only) lodge on the Middle Limay River featuring world class accommodations and international 5-star cuisine.

Probably the richest fishing resource in Patagonia.....
consistent flow, temperature, clarity and cleanness at all times
This is an exceptional tailwater fishery that flows out of Pichi Picun Leufu dam, guaranteeing consistent flow, temperature, clarity and the perfect habitat for rainbows and browns.
Over 50 miles of the Middle Limay River runs along the Patagonian high steppe into the huge Ramos Mejía Lake, home of a large population of rainbows and enormous brown trout, that will run up the river during the season looking for bait fish.
There is also a good number of resident brown and rainbow trout that can be found actively feeding on the surface and will take dry flies whithout hesitaton.
Some people think the Limay river as a "big water streamer only" fishery, and I must say, they are wrong! The middle Limay river system provides a world of fly fishing alternatives because the structure of the river is just fantastic! There are many side channels, shallow and long riffles, cut banks and a lot of perfect wadeable water which makes it a destination for every angler!
The lodge provides easy and quick access to the fishing areas, and the put-isn and take outs for multiple day floats.
Fly fishing for trophies
During the entire fishing season, a good number of resident browns and rainbows are spread along the river system and provide constant action. Regular fly fishing techniques work perfect. Big foam dries and classic dry fly patterns will bring agressive trout to the surface and in many cases unexpected oversized resident browns that can easilly go over 24 inches.
This pristine and healthy habitat offers a LATE SEASON SPECIAL! Beginning on late March, the migration of massive brown trout starts. A large number of browns will start moving up-stream from Ramos Mejía Lake getting ready for the spawning season, and that is when tape measures come out, trying to seek for a real number to put in our records book.... 30".. 31".. 33"....
Believe it or not, things can get crazy!
Sometimes a mouse pattern swimming across a calm deep pool can make the water explode!
This is when the 7 and 8 weight rods come out of our rod tubes.... get ready for a fight!!! HAHA! fun all the way!
In most areas the wading is easy to very easy, except for some rocky areas in the middle and lower sections. The "beauty of the scene" is really breathtaking.
This is a great way to fish the middle limay river. Trust me! You won't regret!
