The Clients Speak
Jon H.

"I was shocked at the diversity of the fisheries offered at both Estancia Del Zorro and Cinco Rios Lodges. We waded, floated river, stalked shorelines on lakes, and boated lakes. The fishing was incredible and the accommodations were even better."

Patagonia's Most Diverse Trout Fishing

The Cinco Rios, Estancia Del Zorro, and the Game Changer RV programs offer the best of Patagonia.  Sebastian Galilea  is a good friend of ours and operates these 3 programs out of Coyhaique, Chile.  This group offers trips that can be tailored towards wade fishing spring creeks and smaller rivers, or you may find yourself floating larger rivers.  Both lodges offer a rich Chilean Experience and if you want to be really adventurous.... consider one of their custom "Game Changer RV" adventures. Contact for info!

Estancia Del Zorro and Cinco Rios Combo Trip

Our most popular trip is to split your week into 3 days fishing out of the Cinco Rios Lodge in Coyhaique, and then spend another 3 days in the high pampas near the Argentina border at Estancia Del Zorro.  This offers the angler a unique variety of rivers, lakes, spring creeks, and small freestone rivers to choose from. The diversity is unparalleled!
