Argentina Trout Fishing – San Huberto Lodge

Argentina Trout Fishing

San Huberto Lodge on the Malleo River

I first traveled to Argentina in 1985. For nearly 40 years I’ve fished, guided, and hosted groups of fly fishermen at a myriad of locations in Patagonia.

The Olsen family’s lodge, San Huberto, remains one of our favorites. Every year Lisa and I depart, believing that the experience couldn’t possibly be better… and yet, the next season always reveals new improvements. The Olsen family and their staff are uncompromising in their pursuit of excellence, and continue to refine and improve every aspect of what they offer. The food, the accommodations, the fishing program, and the incredibly high level of service at San Huberto have to be experienced to be believed.

The lodge accommodates just 12 fishermen that, within the boundaries of the ranch, have access to 22 miles of the Malleo River, a beautiful free stone spring creek, and a remote high mountain lake. Additionally, when conditions are favorable, there is the opportunity to float a remote section of one of the area’s larger rivers.

Hosted Fly Fishing Trips

We are hosting two groups during the 2024-2025 season. Join us for an upcoming trip!

Our hosted weeks at San Huberto Lodge feel like a trip home. We always enjoy the camaraderie of our groups and the friendships that are made.
