|Estancia Bella Vista, on the Rio Gallegos River
Many anglers have wished for an option combining the pleasantries of trout fishing with the "risk and reward" elements of fishing for bright sea trout. On the Rio Gallegos, Bella Vista delivers a perfect blend of the two disciplines along with fine private ranch accommodations, expert European hosts and guides, and caring service for parties of up to eight fishermen.
The Fishing Fishing on the Rio Gallegos is primarily wet fly fishing for the sea-run trout that ascend the river from November through late March. While the Gallegos is a long river, sea-run trout travel quickly and are often caught nickel-bright. The average sea-run fish is over 9 pounds, but trout of 20 to 25 pounds are taken each season on the Gallegos. Fishing for the resident trout is done on two small creeks that average just 25-30 feet across, but there are miles and miles of water available. These trout are uneducated to the ways of the fly rod and readily grab dry flies. Full days on these small creeks can be action-packed, or clients can opt for a half day of resident trout fishing with the sea-run fishing for a great combination day.
The Accommodations Bella Vista is a beautifully refurbished ranch, featuring private rooms and bathrooms, with ample dining and living areas. Excellent meals are served and short distances to the fishing make it comfortable to return at midday for lunch and a siesta, since days can be long.
