This is the for anglers wishing to chase large powerful Rainbow Trout. The fish in this lake are truly huge and live up to all expectations with the average size of the fish in the lake is seven to nine pounds in weight and fish in the ten to twenty pounds range are common place.
The fishing is in four main areas. The lodge has exclusive access to over fourteen kilometres of the Strobel Lake (Jurassic Lake), ten kilometres of both the Barrancosa River and the recently discovered Moro Creek plus around twelve lakes and lagoons. Fishing in these crystal clear waters whether lake or river is by sight fishing using mostly floating lines and a variety of flies from small streamers and nymphs to skating large foam flies and mouse patterns depending on the conditions.
The access to a vast amount of water enables the guides to put the anglers right where the fish are or if the weather should be unpleasant then there is always a place to fish that offers some shelter. Being mobile is a key to success in this area and access to the water is either via ATV Quad Bikes or 4WD vehicles depending of guest preferences.
The fishing is all season long and fish in good numbers are caught from November through to April.
Whilst there is a wide variety of fishing to be enjoyed the bulk of the action takes place on Lake Strobel and in the famed 'Monster Bay' due to the sheer number of large fish that are caught there each season. All fishing is by wading and walking with bank fishing. Occasionally guides will use small floatation boats to access certain areas dependent on conditions.
We would advise all anglers to bring everything that they will need from rods, reels, lines, jackets, Waders and terminal tackle.
