 Lago Las Torres

 

Located about 20 minutes from the lodge and surrounded by jagged mountain peaks that literally rise up over 1 mile above the lake’s edge. It is hard to imagine a more scenic setting. The lake is surrounded by a lush and ancient old growth temperate rainforest and completely protected within the 40,000-acre Lago Las Torres National Reserve. There is a very healthy population of brown trout that average 18-22 inches and are spectacularly colored due to the rich organic quality of the water. Dry fly action can be superb on warm days as the browns aggressively hunt adult dragonflies cruising just above the water’s surface. It is common to see large fish launch completely out of the water to capture dragonflies several feet above the water. They will often exhibit the same aggressiveness towards a large attractor dry fly, such as a when effectively presented. The explosiveness of the takes can be unforgettable. There is a tremendous amount of structure along the edges of the lake with numerous large logs, weed beds and reed areas. There are several shallow open areas between the reeds and the shoreline where large browns can sometimes be stalked and sight-fished to.

 Lago Vega

 

Lago Vega is a smaller lake located about 40 minutes away which holds some truly trophy-sized brown trout.  It sits in a very scenic valley with commanding views of the Matternorn-like Cerro Picacho.   This is a private access lake and typically we will be the only ones on the lake.  This is typically not a place to catch numbers of fish but, if you truly want a shot at that “fish of a life time”, this is the place.
