This region is formed by the provinces of La Pampa, Neuquén, Río Negro, Chubut, Santa Cruz and the Land of Fire. In addition to being one of the most beautiful places in the world, the Argentine Patagonia has a well-deserved and recognized worldwide fame as an ideal destination for the practice of sport fishing in its different modalities. Its waters are home to species such as trout, salmon, perch and Patagonian silverside, among others. Depending on the area, fly casting, spinning or trolling can be practiced.

Fishing in Argentine Patagonia is a fascinating experience. If you want to live this adventure, the fishing season starts in November and lasts until mid-April or May. It is very important for you to know that in most of the Patagonian environments, the modality practiced is catch and release. If you do not have the necessary equipment, do not worry, in the different Patagonian destinations you can rent it. In addition, since Patagonian waters are protected, in most of the fishing areas you must have a permit for the practice of this sport, which you can acquire in the provincial tourist offices or stores designated for this purpose. The region has numerous fishing lodges that will offer you specific services to enjoy the best fishing days in this charming region. We invite you to know where you can make your fishing excursion in one of the destinations that make up the Argentinean Patagonia: the Land of Fire.
