Giant Sea Brown Trout - Rio Grande - Argentina - San Jose Lodge

There are simply no words to describe the feeling of catching a 20+ pound sea run brown trout while standing at the end of the world!. Skating streamers, nymphs or even dry flies into these San Jose pools are all possible ways to experience a violent fight with a monster Brown. Estancia San Jose is located in the heart of Tierra del Fuego, and home to some of the best pools of the famous Rio Grande River where we fish for the largest brown trout on Planet. Owned by billionaire Ted Turner this estancia has become one of Mr. Turner and his family’s favorite fly fishing destinations. The lodge was designed to offer maximum comfort to host our guests during the fishing season. There are 5 double rooms with private bathrooms that can accommodate a maximum of 10 guests, however the Estancia is only permitted to have up to 6 rods fishing the river at once. Because of this we limit occupancy to a maximum of 4 anglers and 4 non anglers making a total of 8 guests giving our guest a more personal and homey atmosphere in the lodge.
