One of the Estancia´s highlight programs is the incredible Barrancoso River, the one and only tributary of Strobel Lake. This beautiful freestone river runs for more than 10 km through our Estancia which allows our guests to access most of its fishing parts. Anglers can fish until the last meters where it enters Strobel lake (Keep in mind that Argentinean regulations do not allow fishing in the river mouth and its surrounding 100 meters.)
In this dreamlike river with its see-through waters and amazing runs of huge trout, anglers can fish 3 different parts named: upper, middle and lower section. Those sections have 2 beats each with its own characteristic features, offering outstanding and demanding fishing all throughout.
The fishing is mostly done with floating lines, number 6, 7, and 8 weight rods, using streamers, nymphs, big dry flies and mouse patterns (technique knowned as “mousing”).
