Meet Matapiojo Fishing

Palena Province has the greatest diversity of fishing in Patagonia. We fish large and small rivers, vast, 2,000 foot deep lakes and countless, reed-lined lagoons (many of them still unnamed). The closeness between the high Andes and the Pacific Ocean gives us everything from sea-run salmon to high-mountain brown trout – offering the visiting angler multiple options, methods and fishing styles.  And did we mention this may be the best place in Patagonia to throw dry flies for trophy browns and rainbows? We can’t wait to show you what we have to offer.
