The lodge

Estancia El Condor. This is a working ranch where the owner, Michael Gough, raises cows and Merino sheep. Guingui, his wife, is an excellent cook and a superb host. The cozy house, built over the Trevelin Valley, can accommodate 6 fishermen and is strategically located at short distance to some of the main fisheries.

Estancia El Talisman. Magnificent lodge built overlooking the Corcovado River. 4 double rooms and 2 suites. From the dinning and living room’s windows, it is possible to watch our guests fishing some of the most productive pools of the Corcovado. This lodge is way inside the Andes Mountains, close to the Chilean border. For this reason, the fishing is limited to the Corcovado and the Nant´I Fall and Grande rivers.

El Recuerdo Lodge. The lodge has 6 double bedrooms with private bathrooms. Located 1 mile outside the town of Esquel over a paved road, has easy access to all the streams in the area.

Mild temperatures. Might be a little cool early in the morning and at sunset. Some rains. And may be windy.
