Lower Canyon Float:
This float is relatively new and perhaps one of the most scenic floats to be found anywhere. We out in for this float just 30 minutes from the lodge. Here the river delves into the lush coastal rainforest with even more rugged granite canyons and spectacular glaciated mountain terrain. Along the way to the put-in we pass by a quaint rural village of about 200 inhabitants and our closest link to civilization. The river gets big down here and flows several miles away from the road and, due to the fact that there is a tricky class IV rapid to be negotiated, we will only undertake this float when the water flow conditions are favorable. We choose not to chance making this float when the water conditions are too high and, for safety reasons, we will typically only operate this float as a two boat trip. We cannot guarantee it will be an option for everyone during their stay, but it is typically possible during most of the season. It is hard to imagine a more spectacular float in Chile, or anywhere else in the world for that matter and we are the only outfitter who does this trip. The river is big, the mountains are big, the forest is lush and primeval and, although the typical brown trout and rainbows are not overly large, we have seen some truly monster browns come out of the depths on nearly every trip, especially in the deep canyon sections along the rock walls. We believe it is only a matter of time before someone lands a 30+ inch fish down there. It is challenging fishing, often throwing large weighted flies on heavy sinking lines, but there is the very real possibility of catching, or at least getting a glimpse of, that brown trout of a lifetime.
