North Patagonia – Programs

Argentina’s northern Patagonia, in the area surrounding the towns Junín and San Martin de los Andes, is without question an anglers dream come true. Boundless trout fishing opportunities exists on its crystal clear rivers, secluded spring creeks and unspoiled mountain lakes. The variety of water is so extensive that one could literally fish the entire season and never fish the same stretch of water twice. Below the main programs we feature in the region.

This is my first time on the area, what program and waters should I focus on?

There are so many options in North Patagonia, once we understand your style and preference we will suggest the best plan to fit you.

DO WE ACTUALLY FISH DIFFERENT WATERS EVERYDAY?

Yes. Our unique location gives us access to an enormous amount of diverse water. Also, by not being bound to a single lodging location or option we are not limited to fishing only the nearby water. We can put you on the best water at the best time.

WILL I SEE OTHER ANGLERS?

Possibly, but most likely no. Andes Drifters specializes in taking its anglers to unique and unspoiled locations. We fish a large amount of limited or special access water that will reduce the possibility of seeing other anglers.

IS PATAGONIA REMOTE?

Some of Patagonia is remote and some is not. We are located in San Martin de los Andes and have daily non-stop air service from Buenos Aires. The town has approximately 30,000 residents, fine dining, beautiful hotels and lodges and great shopping. That being said, a short drive out of town and you are into the Patagonia wilderness with all its beauty and solitude.

IS FISHING THE ONLY ACTIVITY?

Not by any stretch of the imagination. This is especially important if members of your group are non-anglers. A partial list of non-fishing pursuits can include both action and lifestyle activities. Action: hiking, horseback riding, kayaking, climbing, sailing, etc. Lifestyle: touring, shopping, cooking classes, photography workshops, spas, visits to local artisans, etc. These partial lists of activities are just a small sampling of what is available. Creating itineraries that aren’t just about fishing is one of our specialties. So tell us what you would like to do and together we can create a truly unique holiday experience.
