Estancia del Zorro

Chile >> Aisen >> Coyhaique
Fishing and Species
Waters that may be fished during your stay include the Mayo, Petragosa, Rio Simpson, Zorro, Isabella and anonymous spring creeks with large trout. In addition there is some great lake fishing to be had for hungry trout. You will fish 2 anglers per guide, floating, jet boat, walk and wade.

Chilean Patagonia's Estancia del Zorro is in the Coyhaique Alto mountain range on the Chilean-Argentine border, 23 miles from Coyhaique, Chile. The 15,000 acre Estancia rests in the habitat of the red fox (zorro), the namesake of the Estancia. An abundance of condors and eagles, a myriad of other birds, and unexplored brown trout entice fly fishers and bird watchers to follow the trail of the red fox.

Guest fish and explore private waters in both Chile and Argentina while staying at the Estancia del Zorro in Chile. You can combine fishing for resident brown trout on the Estancia del Zorro with fishing for rainbows on an Argentine Estancia.

You will alternate fishing locations during your stay. One day you fish in Chile, the next day you cross the border into Argentina with your bilingual guide. A scenic 35-minute drive across the Chilean-Argentine border traverses the Argentine pampas to the river. On the road to the river, you pass small lagunas: habitat for swans, shorebirds, and pink flamingos.

You and a knowledgeable, patient guide explore the hills, canyons, forests, mountains, pampas, and waters of the Estancia. Your guide helps you fly fish for brown trout on two rivers and on a 15 mile spring creek with browns up to an astonishing 12 pounds, all within the Estancia's private boundaries. Each of the guides has four or more year’s experience fishing and exploring these waters. They are both native Chilean and American. The equipment includes rubber rafts with high-back seats and good vehicles with trailers to reach all the water.

Estancia del Zorro is a full service lodge that can house up to twelve guests. A main Quincho or Great Room invites guests to relax, swap fish stories, and make plans for the next day's angling. Also located in the main building is the dining room where both breakfast and dinner will be served. Here guests prepare their individual streamside lunches and meet for a social hour after fishing.

Peaceful and secluded, the Estancia area is a birdwatcher's paradise for Andean condors, Chilean Southern-ringed kingfishers, eagles, ibis, torrent ducks and pink flamingos. Nature's wonders abound for fly fishers, photographers and hikers.
