End Of Season Villa Maria Report

End Of Season Villa Maria Report

Villa Maria Report, The Rio Grande fishery had its beginnings in the years 1935 to 1937—in the interest of Mr. Menendez and executed by John Goodall. Those hundreds of thousands of brown trout eggs, released in rivers such as the Candelaria, Herminita, Ona, and Menendez back in the 1900, have led to the best sea trout season we’ve seen in the last four years.

For the most part, fishing fluctuated through the summer. Some weeks were great, while others fished slow. From my point of view, climatic variations were the main factors influencing fish activity: from extremely warm temperatures in January to cool waters—approximately 6 degrees C—over the past two weeks.

Winds during the months of January and February varied from the prevailing westerly typical of southwest Patagonia. We encountered nine high water events that significantly altered fish activity, as well. And our guide team was forced to be on its toes, constantly experimenting with different fly patterns and techniques.

One needs look no further than the numbers to see how good our season was. Average weekly weights for sea trout were higher—at 9 pounds—during 72 percent of season, reaching a maximum value of 11.24 lbs. We landed 1,124 sea trout and lost a total of 431 fish. Large sea trout totals were lower this summer than last summer, but we caught over 20 pounds every week. The great news this season is one of our customers entered Villa Maria’s Hall of Fame, with his beautiful female sea trout of 26.5 lbs.

I feel doubly blessed to have had the chance to finish the season with such a fantastic group of fellow guides and lodge staff. Anyone who spent time with these folks will attest to the professionalism and dedication exhibited by everyone at the lodge and on the river. Thank you all for your hard work! Villa Maria Report
