Las Buitreras Lodge with Ken Morrish
January 21 - 28, 2023
Join Fly Water Travel’s Ken Morrish for a week of sea-run brown trout fishing on the Rio Gallegos in Argentina.
Just north of the Straits of Magellan, in southeastern-most Argentina flows the incomparable Rio Gallegos. For many a seasoned rod, this lovely, low-gradient system and the charming Las Buitreras Lodge that serves it represent the pinnacle sea trout experience. The beauty of the Gallegos watershed is otherworldly, and it’s likely for guests to find themselves fishing alongside silver foxes, guanacos, rheas, flamingos, and wild horses. Fishing for the mighty sea-run browns of the Rio Gallegos can be very challenging, and as a result, incredibly rewarding. Here, with highly skilled guides, the warm charm of the Argentinean culture and the extreme beauty of this pristine and unpressured system, guests find themselves having the trip of a lifetime year after year.
