Located in the heart of Chilean Patagonia near the quaint town of Coyhaique, Cinco Rios Lodge invites you for an unforgettable stay in an awe-inspiring corner of the world. Built on the banks of the Rio Simpson, the lodge provides spectacular views of the majestic Patagonian Andes an exclusive access to blue ribbon trout streams across ½ a million private acres. In addition to intimate productive creeks, anglers will fish larger rivers such as the Simpson, Paloma and Aysen. Remarkably, Cinco Rios Lodge guides continue scouting new waters within their private property so that veterans of Cinco Rios can return to fish new, exclusive waters.
Between the hospitality, comfort, exquisite cuisine, professional staff, and world class fishing, Cinco Rios Lodge offers arguably the best fly fishing in Patagonia, Chile.
Cinco Rios Lodge can accommodate up to 12 anglers in six spacious rooms. Each room features two king beds, a spacious private bathroom, seating area and an outdoor deck overlooking the Rio Simpson. The lodge has a magnificent great room with comfortable couches, a beautiful rock fireplace and expansive windows overlooking the valley. There is a large family-style dining room and a bar room with revolving beers on tap. The upstairs lounge has a satellite TV, small fly shop and a well equip conference room. Professional chefs will serve up a variety of Chilean farm to table cuisine, carefully paired with classic Chilean wines.
Cinco Rios Lodge has access to miles of private rivers and streams throughout the region, many of which are only fished by Cinco Rios guests. Public waters include the Simpson, Paloma, Mañihuales and Aysen Rivers. Several lakes and lake inlets are also available, most notably the Azul, Desierto, Elizalde, Castor, Frio, and Pollux. Smaller creeks include the Guillermo, De Leon, Megote, and other unnamed gems. Over the course of a week, Cinco Rios Lodge anglers typically fish two days via a jet-boat on the Azul and Paloma, two days float-fishing on the Simpson or Mañihuales, and two days wading private creeks and streams.
The Best of Patagonia program can be conveniently paired with fishing at Cinco Rios Lodge, Estancia Tecka Lodge and over into Argentina with Natural Anglers and El Fario Lodge.
