Next February we will be hosting a trip to Patagonia with Chocolate Lab Expeditions. We have 6 open spaces available. I have known Ron, the owner, for many years and fished with him this past December. He runs a first class operation and the fishing was fantastic. Visiting Patagonia was an experience in itself, and this is going to a great trip in a great culture. The following is the itinerary for the trip. If I can answer any other questions please send me an email.
These are good terrestrial dates on the Chimehuin (fishing hoppers, beetles, cicadas, ants & droppers if necessary).
Excellent prime dates on the lower Collon Cura—native minnow run comes up the lower 10 miles of the river with 30-50+ fish per boat, between 14-20 inches is average on floating lines. Terrestrial and chubby/pancora (crayfish) combo fishing available above the influence of the minnows.
Excellent prime dates for big browns (21-30+ inches) with dries on the lower Limay—statistically some of the best of the whole season. Quality rainbow (17-21 inches) fishing as well—with terrestrials and nymphs.
Please read through the itinerary, ask any questions you have, and look through the numbers detailed at the bottom.
We have dry bags for each group member, although they are more than welcome to pre-pack and bring their own dry bags ready for the overnight.

For all your travel (airfare, hotels & private transfers in Buenos Aires) you can contact Barbara Sorensen (she’s been a travel agent for 25+ years) listed below.
She has handled many of our clients over the years and with the private bi-lingual transfers the whole process of negotiating Buenos Aires is made super easy, worry-free, and incredibly informative.
Please keep in mind Barbara operates as a separate entity from CLE and will not be able to field questions regarding your fishing itinerary, equipment, or arrangements upon arrival into Patagonia.
