Patagonia’s Big Brown Trout Rivers, the Chimehuín, Collon Cura and Lower Limay. December 2021 through February 2022 is a good time to put away the streamer box and pull out those ugly foam, rubber leg bugs. From a nice hotel in San Martin, we’ll fish the Chimehuín for a day, then spend 2 nights/2.5 days “glamping” on the Collon Cura River. The trip ends by targeting the 5-10lb migrating Brown Trout on the Lower Limay. On the Limay, we’ll spend 3 nights at an inn with private chef and fish 3.5 days on northern Patagonia’s #1 trophy trout river. Big Browns on dry flies is the name of the game on this river, at least for us.
The Lower Limay River is a large, clear tailwater draining the Pierda del Aguila Reservoir and runs all the way to the Atlantic. It has long been the local anglers’ “big fish river.” Fish are found in almost every fishable piece of water, lying against the banks, in riffles, eddies, backwaters and defiantly in the runs.
This is the perfect program for budget-minded dry fly anglers who want to fish hard, target bigger fish and see different waters. If you can swing the time, we recommend adding a night on the Lower Limay!
