Estancia Rio Pelke counts with private access to the best 5 trout rivers in Santa Cruz province, located only an hour and a half drive from the cities of El Calafate and Rio Gallegos.

Fly fishing for trout in these small rivers demand a unique approach and different techniques for brown and brook trout.

These rivers have been outside of the fishermen radar, the reasons why theykeep such good numbers and sizes. The ideal place for both experienced fly fishermen as well as those willing to learn from highly qualified instructors.

Fish

SteelHead

The fish were introduced in the early 1900’s, brought from Californias McCloud river. Steelhead have often been credited as being one -if not the- hardest fighting migratory fish and the specimens in Santa Cruz are no exception, where they can reach over 20lb.

Chasing these fish is a profound experience and the magnificence of the river and landscape will make you feel its magic.
