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.

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.

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.
