About Tres Amigos Outfitters

We call ourselves “A Guides Company”.

This is about a team of guides/instructors, with an extensive world-class career, consolidated as an Outfitter, specialized in some of the most important destinations/species in South Patagonia.

We’re focused in providing a superior service. From the booking stage, doing all the necessary arrangements (as well as every requirement our guests ask for) to the time to make real the fishing trip you’ve dreamed of. Our service is the result of all the experience gained after two decades guiding (with over a thousand guests) and managing lodges in Argentina and abroad.

The Fish / SteelHead

The fish were introduced in the early 1900’s, brought from Californias McCloud river. Steelhead have often been credited as being one -if not the- hardest fighting migratory fish and the specimens in Santa Cruz are no exception, where they can reach over 20lb.
Chasing these fish is a profound experience and the magnificence of the river and landscape will make you feel its magic.

The Fish / King Salmon

King Salmon arrived to Southern Patagonia less than a decade ago.
In this lonely place of the Andes they have developed a numerous population that grows every year due to the really low fishing pressure and not having many predators above them.
Every year the Chinook goes upriver from the Atlantic Ocean to arrive these pristine waters.

The Route of the Spring Creeks

A unique trout fishing experience along a path of real Patagonian Estancias.

Four of the best spring creeks of south Patagonia


These rivers are small and demand a lot of different techniques to catch their fish.
All of these rivers have been outside of the fishermen radar, one of the main reasons why they keep such a good population of brooks and browns.

Geo Position

Accomodation

Accommodation is set in 3 different estancias that keep the original structure.

All of them offer double rooms and a max of two fishermen at a time with a specialized service run by a family from Patagonia. Simple and traditional meals are done on the main house with vegetables and meat from its own production.

    I have visited Argetina some eight times over the last ten years. It was there that I first met Claudio and Juan Manuel who were superb and knowledgeable guides that also turned into very good friends. When things got tough they would know exactly what to do for the best, not only are they excellent world class guides, but also superb casters and fishermen. Anyone who is thinking of taking a trip of a lifetime to Argentina with Claudio and Juan Manuel, I can assure you that you will not be disappointed!
