El Encuentro Fly Fishing is a family-owned lodge and custom trip planning company that specializes in arranging complete experiences that seamlessly combine the best of Argentinian fly fishing with all of the culture, color, and romance of Patagonia. Patagonia… where snow-blanketed mountain peaks feed icy blue-green rivers, all seeming to harbor an untold number of trophy trout. It’s where friendly faces light up the platter-laden dinner table, and stories of the day are heartily toasted well into the evening, knowing tomorrow is bound to be just as unforgettable as today. Fly fishing in Patagonia elicits strong images for those who have traveled here — as well as those who have dreamed of experiencing an Argentine fly fishing trip.
The guests of El Encuentro feel right at home in the comfortable lodge. It’s an ideal setting for a small group of friends who want to enjoy the privacy of the small, intimate setting. With four rooms in the main house and two rooms in an adjacent cottage, El Encuentro can comfortably accommodate up to eight guests. Wi-Fi is available at the lodge. The lodge’s location on the banks of the Rio Futaleufu opens that river to both full and half day floats including being able to go out late in the day right from the lodge to enjoy the evening hatch! With side channels, deep pools, gravel bars and hidden banks, the Rio Futaleufu is renowned for trophy sized rainbow and brown trout. It fishes well all season. There is such a variety of waters in the Esquel-Trevelin area, that El Encuentro can design fishing experiences to meet any angler’s interests. El Encuentro guides have access to private lakes and small streams and spring creeks; in addition, they can take anglers to the Rio Frey and lower Rio Corcovado for float fishing. El Encuentro offers a desirable base from which to fish in any season, without requiring too much driving.
