Villa María Lodge

Freshwater Patagonia, Argentina: Villa María Lodge

February 2016

The rain has been a big absent in the Rio Grande along the whole month. The river remains very low and clear, but it's still delivering the best sea-run brown trout fishing on the planet!

Light rain during the last week of the month bumped water levels by less than an inch. That doesn't sound like much, but the fish felt the difference and react accordingly-charging upstream or changing positions in the pools.

Summertime staples like small nymphs and green machines performed somewhat better than others. And leeches remain the almighty option in low-light conditions.
Regarding lines: Skagit heads with short sink-tips have been the go-to option.

The largest fish caught during the last week of the month was 24 lbs, 7 fish caught over 20 lbs and 28 fish caught over 15 lbs.
