We are pleased to announce and release our BRAND NEW hosted week fishing for Steelhead on the Santa Cruz River Argentina.
With our partners we have managed to open up this well kept secret of outstanding Steelhead fishing, for a few privileged anglers each season.
This special hosted Steelhead fishing trip on the Santa Cruz River that flows out of Argentina’s largest lake is home to a huge population of Steelhead.
These fish have often been credited as being one if not the hardest fighting migratory fish and the specimens in Santa Cruz are no exception.
From late February to May chrome bright Steelhead enter the river from the ocean in huge numbers. We’ve been able to set our cabins next to probably the most productive piece of water in this river due to its structure holding and spawning water.
On this hosted trip we have divided the fishing into four different beats and over 30 named pools. Guests will rotate among the different zones to fish the most productive pools and runs. In case of difficult weather conditions, we’ve made a river road that parallels beats 2 and a part of 3, accessible by truck and only a few minutes away from the cabin.

Steelhead on the Santa Cruz hit the fly hard and because of the powerful environment they live in, often run out huge lengths of line in acrobatic fashion. Once you hook a fish, your life won’t be the same. Some of the strongest and biggest fish of Patagonia swim upstream every year to spawn.
The takes are aggressive and the flow of the river can make you get rapidly to your backing. Chasing these fish is a profound experience and the magnificence of the river and landscape will make you feel its magic.
This is going to be a very special trip and as each week is LIMITED to just 4 rods per week, you are certainly going to get lots of special attention.
