In southern Patagonia, the powerful and wild Santa Cruz River is teeming with steelhead trout. Dive into the heart of this adventure.

Overview :

The Santa Cruz River, located in the middle of the vast plains of Patagonia, offers one of the best fishing areas for rainbow trout. The steelhead trout has often been considered one of the most difficult, if not the most difficult, migratory fish to combat. Hunting for rainbow trout in Santa Cruz is a truly profound experience through its magnificent river and sumptuous landscapes.


One of Argentina's biggest rivers, the Santa Cruz can seem intimidating at first sight. Some of the biggest fish in all of Patagonia come up this river every year to spawn and given their size and strength you are sure to come across monsters. 

Anglers will rotate between different areas to fish the most productive spots and routes according to the existing conditions. 

Fishermen will be transported to their fishing spot daily by a 2 meter Zodiac boat equipped with a 70 hp engine or a van (all our vehicles are insured and have been approved to transport tourists).

Lodging :

Los Plateados River Cabin is located 80 km upstream from the Rio Santa Cruz estuary and is strategically located directly on the bank of the river overlooking the region. 

The lodge is simple in nature but extremely comfortable and is equipped with two single rooms with two beds each.

Each room can accommodate a maximum of four fishermen at a time.

Breakfast and dinner are served in the lodge's dining room, which has an indoor wood burning fireplace and a breathtaking view of the river. Lunch is served on the river. 

Technique and Advice :

We suggest you bring your fly rods and different types of silk. 

We recommend that you fish slowly while continuing downstream along the spots. 

Our guides will provide you with all the information you need to fish this spot efficiently and will be happy to guide you if you wish to improve your casting technique. 

Equipment will be available on site for purchase through our partner.
