FLY FISHING the RIO PICO REGION of ARGENTINA

RIO CORCOVADO

The Corcovado is a fabulous fishery that stretches more than sixty miles through Argentina before crossing the border into Chile. It originates at Lago Vinter, one of the largest lakes in the region and the river runs cold with consistent flows for most of the season. It offers classic Western-style trout water and very large fish. If you are willing to fish hard and wait until the end of the season, then the upper Corcovado is perhaps the best place in South America to catch a huge brook trout in a river. The lower stretch of the river fishes well with streamers, hoppers and large dries throughout the season.

The upper Corcovado, Lago Vinter, and Lago Guacho provide the best chance at a trophy brook trout outside of Labrador. The best time to find them is in the Argentine fall (March and April.) The upper Corcovado also has huge rainbows in the early spawning season. Later in the summer, the rainbows are average size and fairly easy to catch. Fly fishing in these areas in the past has provided both large fish and incredible numbers.
