Join Cascade International and Turismo Barraco for the fishing experience of a lifetime. Based on the deep, turquoise waters of the Puelo River in Chile’s southern Lake District, this 8-day trip will transport you to fly-fishing paradise. Fly through Santiago de Chile, south to Puerto Montt and transfer by helicopter from Puerto Montt over breathtaking natural vistas to our base in Puelo.
Our accommodations will be at the remote lodge of Tursimo Barraco located on the shores of the majestic Puelo River. Tranquil moments of fishing are but a short walk past the wood-fired hot tubs and down the rolling bank. During the six days at the lodge, our knowledgeable local guides will take you to prime fishing locations via jet boat, drift boat or motorboat. Depending on the season, you can catch and release rainbow trout, brown trout, speckled trout, Salar and Chinook salmon.
For our final night, we will helicopter back to Puerto Montt, a charming Germanic settlement on the edge of Lago Llanquihue. Tour both Puerto Montt and Puerto Varas to experience the local culture and warm hospitality of the Chilean people as well as gain some insight into Chile’s interesting and varied history.
