Jim Carter’s beautiful brown on his first trip to Patagonia!

When we wrote you back in November at the beginning of the fishing season, we were full of hope and promise that the full snowpack would lead to lots of water and good fishing. Well, Madre Naturaleza has delivered everything she promised and more. The abundant water levels, coupled with the cool weather, has created one of the best seasons in recent memory. Our fish are bigger, fatter and happier than ever. Many of our regular guests have remarked on the outstanding fishing this season. Of course, just to be fair, the “usual” fishing at Rio Manso is pretty much off the chart, but this season seems to be a bit more than that. Check out some of these photos, and know that there is plenty of fishing left this season.

Note to Self: Never let the 6 foot 4 inch guide hold your fish if you want them to look big!

Fall is the Time for Big Fish

Rio Manso’s Fall Season

Mid March – April 30, 2023

Experienced anglers know that fall is the perfect time to hunt for what just might be the fish of a lifetime. But why should they have all the fun? Anyone can learn to strip a streamer and chase the dream of a personal best. But maybe you aren’t feeling all that driven. In that case, relax by the fire, sip some malbec or scotch, and come see why fall brings people to Patagonia year after year!
