Deep in the Coyhue Forest of the Tenth Region of Chile, the ‘Big River’ (Futaleufú’s translation from the native Tehuelche tongue) rolls through some of the most unspoiled mountain scenery on the planet. The Futaleufú is a standalone fishery that grows healthy stocks of both rainbow and brown trout, fed by abundant hatches of mayfly, caddis, and stonefly. A large resident stock of fish, great hatches and classic fly water make the Futaleufú a trout fisherman’s paradise!

Type of fishing

Futa Lodge offers a great diversity of fishing, from float trips on the Futaleufú River to small tributaries and hidden lakes where the trout may never have seen a fly. The main species you will fish for are brown and rainbow trout, with occasional sea-run species. The fish are prolific in numbers and there are many trophy size trout to target. Fly hatches occur throughout the season, which means that both wet and dry flies are successful. Both wading and fishing from drift boats work well.
