FISHING INFORMATION You will be fishing the southernmost rivers of Chilean Patagonia on Navarino Island. This outlet river for Navarino Lake is full of Brook and Brown Trout, and a small amount of Rainbow Trout. Most fly-fishing on this river is done with floating line and wet flys.
LINES To be well prepared for Navarino, you should include at least three lines to accommodate varying water levels and wind conditions. Floating lines are typically most useful in low water conditions. We often use floating line with polyleader as intermediate to extra fast sinking tip. A good range of sinking polyleaders is a must. For a single handed rod, 5 to 10 feet is the best choice. We recommend bringing a wading staff to safely wade these slippery bottomed rivers.
