Tres Rios Lodge, Fly Fishing & Adventure - Patagonia Chile

Fly Fishing Chile's magnificent fisheries is our passion. Fly fishing Chile since 1976, we have in-depth knowledge of fisheries in the heart of Patagonia trout country, from Puerto Varas to Coyhaique. Take advantage of our eagerness to share that experience and join us on fly fishing adventures on the most spectacular watersheds, in the most incredible scenery, of Patagonia Chile. Our made-to-order fly fishing programs include a wide range of fly fishing options on wild rivers, streams, spring creeks, and alpine lakes, reached by float-trips, hike-ins, ride-ins, helicopter, and traditional walk/wading. Whether you want a fly fishing float trip excursion for a day, a fly fishing road trip covering an extensive area of Patagonia Chile, a warm and hospitable full-service fly fishing lodge, or a combination of these, we can make it happen.

A beauty like this searun is a possibility on the Patagonia Road Trip with Tres Rios guides that have been fishing the area over 19 years.

Adventures include the Lakes Crossing, whitewater rafting, kayaking, horseback riding, hiking, trekking, zip line, touring Chiloe Island and much more. Whether you are dedicated anglers looking only for trout and salmon, or a group of anglers and adventurers looking for a mix of fly fishing and unique Chilean experience, we can design the perfect program for everyone.

Fly Fishing by Helicopter is one of our unique specialities. We have had the privilege to explore the remotest and most pristine fly fishing destinations in all of Patagonia Chile by the only means of transport that can reach them, helicopter. Our team of seasoned professionals have the know how, equipment and experience to take you on incredible journeys to virgin fisheries in enthralling wilderness never altered by the hand of man. Our heli-fishing programs, covering Puerto Varas to Coyhaique and all points in between, are always custom made whether fly fishing for a day or over several days.

Tres Rios Lodge, located in the Lakes Region of Patagonia Chile, between volcanoes Osorno and Calbuco, lakes Llanquihue and Todos Los Santos, enjoys one of the most spectacular settings anywhere. Located east of Puerto Varas at the edge of the Andes and Chile's first National Park, it's ideally located to access the world-class fly fishing and adventure options in all directions. Enjoy personalized attention and warm hospitality in a family owned and operated lodge in remote countryside near the Petrohue River and the Lakes Crossing to Bariloche.
