Isla Monita Fishing Lodge is ideally located with excellent access to the greatest diversity of trout water in Chilean Patagonia. Right from our doorstep we access the whole of Lago Yelcho and its magnificent reed beds, the lower 7 miles of the Futaleufu River, including its delta as it enters the Yelcho ( a five minute boat ride from the lodge), and four private, sheltered lagunas. In addition, we run drift boat float trips on the upper and lower Futaleufu sections, the Rio Yelcho, and two sections on the Palena River. All this is between a 45 minute and 1 1/2 hours´ drive from the lodge.
In Chile, the wild card is the weather, and we strongly believe that having a diversity of water to offer the visiting angler is the best way to ensure that your trip to the south is not anything but a success story. We have, in fact, enough water within our operations that we have guests who have come back for their third week with us and are still getting on new water.
We maintain a high standard of quality in our North American guide staff, who are trained and well experienced in offering such a diversity of trout fishing opportunities.
Guests can choose whether they prefer river or lake fishing, from a boat or a float-tube, or whether they prefer to wade or fish from the bank. The guides provide expert guidance and lots of experience in the use of all the Lodge's extensive fishing equipment and facilities. The extensive variety of available fishing includes the following:
* Drift-boating down several major rivers with magnificent scenery and a huge variety of fishing opportunities, including deep pools, eddies, swift runs, and lots of natural fish habitats.
* Jet-boating to stretches of river inaccessible by other means to fish virgin waters.
* Float-tubing or pontooning in lagunas where the only sound is the splashing of large fish jumping for flies.
* Wading in large rivers with overhangs and natural obstacles for big fighting fish.
* Wading in smaller streams of great beauty and crystal waters, teasing out beautiful fish with dry flies.
* Row-boating in deep silent lagunas beneath hanging glaciers and snow-capped peaks.
* Fishing the main lake reed-beds and the mouths of rivers feeding the lake for powerful and hungry trout.
