The Patagonia River Guides experience is a unique blend of inspiring waters, varied fishing, beautiful scenery, interesting culture, lasting friendships and unrivaled service, complemented by gourmet and regional cuisine, delicious wines and first-class accommodations. There are few places in the world where you can enjoy the diversity and quality of fishing offered in Patagonia, but careful planning and execution are critical to getting the most out of your trip. At Patagonia River Guides, our philosophy to fishing is straightforward: fish the best rivers, at the best times, with the best guides.

On any given day, Patagonia River Guide’s guests could find themselves wading small freestone streams or spring creeks, floating bigger rivers from comfortable rafts or drift boats, stalking fish and sight fishing in gin-clear water or even spending a day in search of fish over ten pounds on our area still waters. Fish size and numbers depend on the type of water and the angler’s skill level, but we are confident that the quality, diversity and unparalleled beauty of our fisheries will not disappoint. Since we have so many options, extended stays are recommended in order to see and experience as much as possible in one, two or all three of our distinct regions.
