The opening season report from Laguna Verde
After a long winter of heavy snow-fall, the water levels are good and the season has got off to a strong start at Laguna Verde...
Luciano Alba reports that the fishing started strongly and remained excellent throughout the week: 'Guests were able to fish many different locations of our Estancia, combining most of the programs according to what they like. While some anglers preferred to focus on Barrancoso river and Moro creek, others almost entirely concentrated on Strobel lake.
Two fish of 20 or more pounds were caught at Strobel lake, while a 32 inch female was caught at Barrancoso river lower section.
At Strobel, a 22 pounder was caught by Mario M, who landed the fish at Monsters bay in the late afternoon as the fishing day was coming to an end. A second 22 pounder was caught by Fito M, whose third trip it was to Laguna Verde.'
Understandably, they are looking forward to the rest of the season hugely. For more information on this outstanding fishery and to enquire about availability, please contact Charlie White or Hannah Treliving.
Isobel S with one of 9 fish she and her husband Ian, landed on just one session on the Rio Grande. A great session for sure but made slightly more epic when you are told that they were sharing a rod and that the combined weight of those 9 sea trout was 122lbs. Just an astonishing fishery.
One of the great pleasures of working in the travel business is when you speak to returning clients who have had a fishing holiday that has surpassed all their expectations. It is really rewarding to hear the genuine enthusiasm in their voices as they tell you all about it. I recently spoke to clients who just returned from ten days of fishing the rivers and lakes from Patagonian BaseCamp in Chile.
It was a great fishing week. Lots of fresh fish coming in from the ocean. We had excellent sessions fishing floating lines and sunray shadow or emb.
108 fish for the week.
Dave P was our top rod (as usual) with 23 fish in the net. Clel N landed 22 fish.
Karl S landed the fish of the week: 19 pounds.
