Argentina 2006 / 07 Fishing Season
The fishing beats:
Fagnano area: It´s a big and rich fishery
with Lake Brown Trout, Rainbow, Brook trout and some times Enclosed
Salmon (Salmo Salar sebago); 3 to 6 pounds are common for brownies
and Rainbows, sometimes we will find bigger fish. Brook trout and
Enclosed Salmon are common between 2 to 5 pounds. Usually we hope to
land an average of 4 to 6 fish per angler day.
Yakush area: It´s a small lake with plenty
of lake brown trout and big brook trout; 3 to 6 pounds is average
for brownies and 2 to 5 pounds for brook trout. An average of 6 to 8
fish per day per angler is common.
Claro river: This river was closed to
fishing by the provincial Government during the last 6 years, for
that reason, we expect that next season could be open again for all
fishermen. If not our itinerary can be changed for more fishing on
Yakush and its tributaries Prior to closing this river 6 years ago
it held a good stock of resident browns and fantastic lake run
brownies to 12lbs, with an average bag of 5 fish per day.
Rio Grande: The world famous river known
for its sea run brown trout and resident browns. We will expect the
biggest fish for each angler here, and we would hope for an average
of 12 to 14 pound fish and two to three fish per angler day.
