Fly fishing in the Simpson River

This 40 kilometer river, located to the north of Coyhaique, is world renowned for its fly fishing and is considered one of the best places on earth to practice the sport.  It contains fario and rainbow trout, and coho, altantic, and chinook salmon (up to 25 kilograms). Visitors use mayfly, worms, and nymphs among other types of bait.  There are forests abundant with coigües, mañíos, and cinnamon trees.  If you’re lucky, you may be able to spot pumas or huemuls (patgonian animal from the deer family).  It is possible to stay in the lodge located in Simpson.
