Villa Maria Lodge Fishing Report 8th February 2024

Another week has passed at Villa María Lodge, amidst old friends and countless tales. The weather? A typical week of stable conditions with no rain but a few chilly nights initially causing icy waters. However, the consistent weather turned fishing into a constant delight throughout the week.

Without rain, the river remains unchanged, steadily decreasing, with water crystal clear and pristine. Our gear hasn’t seen much change in recent weeks – short rods, light sinking tips, and long leaders. The fly selection followed suit, with a diverse range of nymphs and small tubes dominating, only occasionally swapping for larger flies in specific moments.

Looking ahead, the forecast for the upcoming week hints at light rain. We’ll see if it influences the water level, clarity, and consequently, the fishing. Stay tuned for more tales from the river!

Tight lines!
