The Villa Maria on the Rio Grande does not need any introduction due to its reputation for Sea Trout fishing. Each week you will have a very good chance of catching a fish over 20lbs. There is very little human habitation in this part of the world, which means the fishing is very reliable.
Villa Maria is in prime position at the lower half of Rio Grande only a few miles from the tidal waters and is approximately 20 minutes from the city of Rio Grande. This was the second fishing lodge established on the Rio Grande and caters for just 6 anglers per week. Due to access control and catch-and-release regulations, the Rio Grande is one of the most productive sea-run Brown Trout fishery in the world.
Unlike Kau Tapen, which is located on the middle river, Villa María offers anglers the first chance at the newly arriving Sea Trout on the Río Grande. If you enjoy the challenge of two-handed rods, you will love this fishing experience.
The chromed sea-run Brown Trout will enter the Rio Grande in Decemeber and continue to enter until May. The fishing between these months is always exciting. Peak weeks can be difficult to determine but January to March tend to be the most productive.

At Villa Maria the fishing schedule is divided up between 4.5 hour morning and evening sessions. You will have access to 18 miles of banks on the Rio Grande with 60-70 pools.
