ADVENTURE TRAVEL IN CHILE

FISHING

Chiloe Easter Island Punta Arenas Terra del Fuego Torres del Paine

FISHING IN CHILOE


Salmon-type fish can be caught in Chiloe rivers in the areas of Chepu, Negro and Butalcura. In Coluco, Carihueico, Tarahuin and Natri Lakes, fly fishing and trawling are also popular.


FISHING IN EASTER ISLAND

Fishing is one of Easter Island's most popular sports. The reason for this is very simple: its generous seas host some 126 different species of fish; it also has areas suited to the sport-fishing and "returning" variants, the latter the mode in which caught fish are returned to the ocean.

One can fish on the shore or on the open sea. Regardless of the spot you choose, you will find this activity rewarding.

FISHING IN PUNTA ARENAS

Patience is the key - the angler waits patiently for the fish to bite the hook and then shakes the rod. A struggle begins, the two opponents pulling strongly, neither wanting to lose. Adrenalin pumps hard through one's body.
Angling is an activity that sharpens one's senses and develops one's patience. Anglers may spend minutes, even hours waiting for the rainbow, brown (also called fario) and freshwater trout to bite the hook. These trout varieties were bred by Patagonian settlers in the 20th century.
It is during those apparently boring moments waiting for the bite, that the endless beauty of the rivers in Chilean Patagonia becomes evident. This magnificent view makes the wait more tolerable. A real adventure, in one of the best places in the world for angling. In Chilean Patagonia the fishing season starts on October 16th and finishes on April 14th except for the Forest Reserve Laguna Parrillar where the season finishes on March 14th. Anglers must have a special permit issued by the "Servicio Nacional de Pesca" - National Fishing Service (Senarpesa)
Anglers should be aware that using live bait is not allowed. Besides, all the fish shorter than 35 cm must be thrown back into the water. Anglers are not allowed to take away more than three fish a day, whose total weight must not be over 13 kilos.

The rivers mentioned below are ideal for fishing in Punta Arenas:

- San Juan River, located in the area of Fuerte Bulnes, 58 km from Punta Arenas. Rainbow, brown and freshwater trout can be caught in this river.

- Chabunco River, located on the way to the airport, 19 km from Punta Arenas. The fishing zone extends 2 km from the mouth of the Strait of Magellan. Brown and rainbow trout can be caught. March is the ideal season for fishing.

- Lake Parrillar, good for fishing, especially fresh water trout. It is 49 km from Punta Arenas and anglers can get a good catch throughout the season (from October 16th to March 14th)

- Penitente River, 150 km north of Punta Arenas, on the road leading to Puerto Natales. Rainbow, coffee-colored and salmon-like trout can be caught here.


FISHING IN TIERRA DEL FUEGO

Numerous lakes and rivers that zigzag through Tierra del Fuego harbor a large variety of trout, which usually weigh from 2 to 14 kilos. There are many such reasons for considering this part of Patagonia to be a favorite destination for those partial to good fishing.
Sport fishing has become one of the most important activities in Tierra del Fuego in recent years. That is why it is well furnished with a suitable facility and equipment infrastructure.
Trout-fishing season (brown and rainbow trout) begins on October 15th and finishes on April 15th. Sportsmen must have a fishing license issued by a competent authority.

Some of the ideal areas to go fishing are:

Grande River: Its strong Surum trout, which weigh up to 10 kilos, are appealing trophies for sport fishers. These trout are found in deep pools and beavers´ dams. The beavers in Tierra del Fuego were brought from Canada.
Guanacos, gray foxes and majestic condors are found on the outskirts of Tierra del Fuego. There are both lodges and campsites here.

Lake Blanco: This is an ideal lake to fish brown and rainbow trout. There are no hotels on the shores of this lake. It is located 210 kilometers south of Porvenir.

Condor River: We guarantee you brown and rainbow trophies during the fishing season. The only way to reach this place is by 4WD vehicles. It is located 180 kilometers south of Porvenir.

Likewise, there are other highly recommended spots such as Lake Deseado, Lake Escondido, Lake Lynch and Azopardo River, among others.


FISHING IN TORRES DEL PAINE

ANGLING FOR TROUT AND SALMON IN THE TORRES DEL PAINE NATIONAL PARK

Testing your skill or tempting your luck. Wait for the bite, the pull of the hungry catch, the start of the fight between animal a man, full of emotions, a fight for life and death, which is repeated throughout the numerous lakes and rivers in the Torres del Paine, in which marvellous waters there is an abundance of Rainbow trout, amongst other prize species, for those addicted to sport fishing.

Fishing in a natural paradise. Feeling the fresh breeze, angling for a good catch in pollution free waters and … never giving up, always persisting, once, ten, a hundred times because, sooner or later, that hard to catch Brown or Rainbow trout will bite sooner or later.

Within the National Park of the Torres del Paine there are many places where to go fishing for sports. Amongst the species that can be found in Patagonian waters we can mention Brown trout, Rainbow trout (which were introduced by colonists in the early nineteen hundreds), apart from Steel Head trout, Coho (Silver) Salmon, Chinook (King) Salmon and Atlantic salmon.

To test your angling skills you should try these places:

The Serrano River, located a 168 kilometres (slightly above 100 miles) from Puerto Natales. It is a good river for fishing with an abundance of Brown and Rainbow trout that can reach weights of up to three kilograms (6.6 lbs.). There is good fishing to be had from November through February, although the best season is during March and April.

Its headwaters lay in the Bull Lake - Lago Toro and it runs down to the Bay of Last Hope.

The Hollemberg River is located 25 kilometres (approximately 15 miles) south of Puerto Natales. There is an abundance of Brown and Rainbow trout and the best season is between October through March.

Lago del Toro is located 80 kilometres (50 miles) from Puerto Natales. In its crystal clear waters there is an abundance of trout. Fishing is good all through the year.

Lake Balmaceda, at 40 kilometres (25 miles) from Puerto Natales. In spite of its muddy waters and rocky bottom you can find trout weighing up to 4 kilograms (almost 9 lbs.). Here fishing is good all year round.

*Please Note: Only sports fishing and angling is allowed within the National Park of the Torres del Paine. Those interested in this activity should apply to the National Fishery Department - Servicio Nacional de Pesca (Sernapesca), located on Yungay Street Nr. 361 in Puerto Natales.
