OUR FIRST SEASON at Estancia Carlota wrapped up in early March. BELIEVE US WHEN WE SAY THAT THE RIO GALLEGOS DID NOT DISAPPOINT!
During a two-month period, we managed to slice and map out 28 holding pools and juicy runs along our +25 km in the lower third of the famous Rio Gallegos river — more water than most anglers will be able to cover during a week fishing. And when we finished the season, we still had sections of the river that remained unexplored in 2020.
Sea trout Fishing in Argentina… Two rivers have evolved to become the standard-bearers for modern sea trout fishing, and arguably provide the most reliable fishing to be had for the traveling spey fisher. While sea trout, or sea-run browns, can still be found in the Northern Hemisphere — tributaries to the Baltic Sea come to mind — nowhere on the planet today can match the number and size of the specimens returning to these two rivers each austral summer. In Rio Gallegos you have a very real chance to connect with sea trout between 8 and 25 pounds on a daily — not weekly — basis. Fishing at Carlota is for fresh-run sea trout to 20-plus pounds. Sea trout make their way into the Gallegos system around the end of December and continue with strong runs through the end of April. Guests have complete access to fishing on both the Rio Gallegos and the Rio Chico during their stay. The Estancia Carlota’s private double-bank reach of the Rio Gallegos is a short drive by 4x4 vehicle from the estancia.
