Day 1, Saturday: Arrival
Lodge Staff will meet you at the Balmaceda airport and drive you to the Paloma River Lodge for lunch and accommodations. You may rest or explore the possibilities of an afternoon of wade fishing. In the evening you will head back to the lodge for cocktails, dinner and a chance to visit with your fellow anglers.
Day 2, Sunday: Walk and wade on The Paloma River and then hit the Lake
After an early breakfast at the lodge, we will take a short 20-minute drive to the Mogote. River we will wade fish along the upper Paloma River until we reach our motor boat. We will then motor up to fish the outlets of Lake Desierto and Azul. Browns here average 14-19 inches with a good number above that size.
Day 3, Monday: Horseback to the otherwise inaccessible reaches of the Magote River
A 30-minute drive puts us on the Mogote. River where we will mount our horses and head upstream about 1 hour and begin a day of great wade fishing for many browns in the 10" - 14" range. The Mogote River has the largest population of fish in our area, which means lots of action on dry flies. Some fish up to 18". You may want a 4 weight rod today.
Day 4, Tuesday: Float the Paloma River
A 5-minute drive will place us at the drift boat for fishing the Paloma River in front of the lodge. These browns love our size 4 Big Ugly dry fly. The average brown trout onthe Paloma River will range from 16 to 20" with a chance at a 22" or bigger fish.
Day 5, Wednesday: Float The Paloma River
We jump back into the drift boat and fish the middle stretch of the Paloma River. On this stretch we have many channels to wade fish, especially the already famous "El Loco" and Jumping fish channels.
Day 6, Thursday: Jet The Paloma River and The Lake Elizalde Outlet
We start up the jet boat and run down to the lower Paloma River to fish our most isolated stretch of river. After lunch we will wade fish up to the Lake Elizalde outlet. It often presents true match the hatch opportunities for some of the largest fish of the week.
Day 7, Friday: Last day of Fishing and Farewell Lamb Barbeque
Today is your chance to revisit your favorite piece of water for another go at that big one that got off earlier in the week, or maybe try another stream of Felipe’s choice. This evening we are all invited to Alfredo’s for a whole lamb, roasted Patagonia style and typical Chilean fare.
