The Chilean Patagonia is, without a doubt, a paradise for fishing enthusiasts, thanks to its crystal-clear rivers and the geographical and meteorological conditions of the Aysen Region, making it the perfect habitat for the reproduction and survival of salmonid species. 
The area is mainly home to brown and rainbow trout, but you can also find chinook salmon swimming upstream to spawn in the rivers where they were born.

Catch and release melimoyu lodge

CATCH AND RELEASE

The Melimoyu Lodge team is concerned with conserving the flora, fauna and biodiversity of the Lodge’s surrounding areas, which is why we operate on a catch and release philosophy.  This practice improves the fish population, allowing them to stay and reproduce in the ecosystem, so that a growing number of fishers can enjoy a successful fishing adventure the following season.
 
The essence of catch and release fishing is in the preservation of the environment, maintaining its equilibrium and the necessary preparation and education to fully understand the natural processes and, therefore, offer sustainable and successful fishing excursions. With the correct handling and return techniques, the fish caught have a higher chance of survival.

HELI-FISHING​

For fly-fishing lovers, heli-fishing offers the chance to access the most pristine lakes and rivers by air, where they can find abundant fish, breathtaking landscapes, native wildlife, and where it is nearly impossible to find other fishers. This opportunity will no doubt make for an unforgettable experience.

At Melimoyu Lodge, we have a heliport for the convenience of our guests who want to arrive by helicopter and practice Heli-Fishing. Our guides can take them to hidden fishing areas surrounded by thousand-year-old forests, pristine settings, without fishing pressure in the Chilean Patagonia, to discover uncharted spots while fishing for the wildest trout. An experience very few will be able to tell about.

Melimoyu Lodge does not have its own helicopter, but our staff can offer advice and coordinate with agencies to meet the needs of each guest or group.

Rivers and lakes

There is a wide variety of waters for fishing, including the world famous Figueroa and Palena Rivers, and Lake Rosselot, to name a few. We also know the most remote and exclusive spots for a pressure-free fishing experienced, immersed in the nature and sounds of the rivers and lakes. Melimoyu Lodge has private areas that can be exclusively accessed by our guests for a different fishing experience every day.
 
The area has such a variety of waters that you can use a wide range of fishing equipment, from a #4 line to two-handed #10 line. We also have fishing spots for both experts and novices alike, and although the waters are constantly changing, a fisher’s capacity for interpretation can make all the difference for catching trout all season long. 
Fishing equipment recommended by our lead guide for all waters in the area:

 

  • 10ft rod with #4 line, for European nymph and another reel with floating line for dry flies.
  • 9.6ft rod with #6 or #7 line, reel, with floating line, another 150-250-grains sinking tip and another full sinking V for lake fishing.
  • 9ft rod with #9 line, reel with floating line, and another 150-250-grain sinking tip for Chinook, for those not trained in double-handed fishing.
  • 12ft or longer double-handed, #9 line, with floating line, running line and multi-tip skagit set.
Let us show you what it’s like to fish in the Patagonia!

Inolvidable Experiencia Como todos los años, con mi grupo de amigos (fly fishing) elegimos un lugar para relajarnos y practicar nuestro pasatiempo favorito. En 2019 seleccionamos Melimoyu Lodge a orillas del Río Palena, cerca de la localidad de La Junta. Era primera vez que nos aventurábamos en ese sector, norte de la Carretera Austral. Nuestra experiencia fue “simplemente extraordinaria” no solamente por la buena pesca (río Palena, lago Rosellot, río Figueroa, lago Yelcho) sino también y sobretodo por la excelente atención y cuidada organización del Lodge. Extraordinario recibir atención 5 estrellas en un lugar tan apartado e inmerso en la naturaleza como Melimoyu Lodge y eso fue exactamente nuestra experiencia . Este año cuando debamos reunirnos nuevamente nuestro grupo de pesca consideraremos volver a Melimoyu Lodge para vivir nuevamente la experiencia. Felicitaciones a los que hicieron realidad ese maravilloso lugar y a Chile por disponer de tan buena infraestructura.

A great lodge: Fabulous surroundings and hosts We spent the last three days of our three week Patagonia vacation at Melimoyu lodge. It was one of our most memorable experiences of the trip. The lodge is remote, located in a lush rain-forest, but despite its remoteness the lodge was beautiful and comfortable. In addition to world-class fishing and guides the lodge offers other activities to occupy those not interested in fishing. The food was superb and most importantly the hosts and staff were exceptionally engaging. Outstanding.

This place inspires books, movies and stories! After a couple of months deciding when we were going to visit this place (that we've heard off from some american and european friends), we packed our bags and took a flight that got us to the incredible Hotel & Patagonia Alto Melimoyu in "La Junta" late at night. We departed the next day taking a one hour trip that took us from la Junta to the Lodge, and that it was like going somewhere you've never heard of before. Bulky and leafy roads through a bushy forest made us feel like we were in the middle of a Jurassic Park. Once we got there we were astonished by this lodge, its architecture and decoration, are only overcomed by the coziness of the rooms, attention and landscape that you can appreciate when you look outside the window. Then, we had a lamb bbq (cordero al palo) with other tourists in a separated area from the lodge, and right next to the river. Those were some of the details that make the difference. The next day we went fly fishing (best spots i've seen) in company of the instructor, but right before that, we went up the river where we encountered some hot springs that made us relax and get ready for action. We eve took a buggy ride and we visited Lago Verde, to see some other landscapes that are unique and fascinating. We had such an amazing time and we would come back every time we could. We recommend this place like no other we've visited before. A totally incredible and complete experience that exceeded our high expectations.
