Week report 3 Las Buitreras 2017

Week three and a slight overcast and a river in perfect conditions awaited the group as they arrived to estancia Las Buitreras.

Unlike many other rivers and waters in Patagonia right now the conditions in Rio Gallegos are near to perfect in both water level, color and temperature. This is all the result of a constant and rather unusual number of days with overcast, rain and even snow further up in the mountains.

“There is nothing like being out on the river with friends”

To no surprise to anyone Solid Adventures owner Christer Sjöberg and his wife and current Las Buitreras record holder Annacarin had timed their first visit of the season perfect and arrived with huge smiles on their faces, knowing that they were in for a treat.


Week report 3 Las Buitreras 2017


The fishing this week was done mainly using lighter double hand rods rigged with floating or clear intermediate lines. In some pools the use of sink tips was very efficient. As for flies the ever-trusted girdle bug in size 8 along with smaller streamers in size 6 did the trick all week long

“The hot zones change on a daily basis, who will be on the fish next week?”

The new Galleria that was built during the off season is proving a real success and has lifted the atmosphere and comfort of the lodge to a new level. It has quickly become the main socializing area and the perfect after fish saloon.
The new drink menu has seen some new add ons to to the classic wine and beer offerings and guests can now enjoy after fish Gin & Tonics or Mojitos in the Galleria while reminiscing about today’s fishing.

As tradition has it Annacarin Sjöberg landed the biggest fish of the week, a stellar 20lb chromer caught on a size 8 Girdle bug in Outer Limits.
