THE LOS ALERCES NATIONAL PARK REGION - ARGENTINA

Los Alerces National Park in Argentina was established to protect one the last stands of giant redwood trees in South America. It encompasses more than 500,000 acres and is home to over two dozen rivers and lakes for your fly fishing pleasure.

Most of the national park is never touched, due to the fact that no roads exist except on the eastern edge. The ecosystem is best described as a temperate rainforest, making it different than most of Argentine Patagonia (which is generally dry.) To access the national park, you will most likely stay in Esquel on the western entrance or in Cholila on the northern entrance.

Fortunately, someone with insight planted trout in this area about one hundred years ago and today they are flourishing. You can catch rainbows, browns, brook trout and landlocked salmon in the area's emerald waters, and, will no-doubt, enjoy the park as much for the scenery as the fishing. The Los Alerces region offers access to the Carrileufu, Rivadavia, Arraynes and Frey rivers.
