STROBEL LAKE: LOCATION MAKES THE DIFFERENCE

You may heard about "Jurassic lake" and think that's the name of the lake but it's in fact our brand name and the name that made our place world famous.

There is no freshwater system in the world comparable with this 63 km2 lake, here trout found the perfect system to live and get to +20 lb in just a few years. But not all the coast of the lake is the same and we are lucky to hold the most productive beats in the area by far!

Here is a resume of a few of the most popular beats of the lake:

STROBEL LAKE BEATS

Mouth Bay

 

If we were put on the spot and asked specifically where the most prolific 100 yards of trophy trout water in the world was, our response would be instant and our tone would be confident. “It is where Argentina’s Rio Barrancoso flows into Lago Strobel.”

Cochinos Bay

 

Everyone who has had the opportunity to fish this bay knows how productive it can be, with the chance to sight fish for 20lb plus fish patrolling often among the rocks beneath your feet.

Silver Bay

 

Silver bay is located at 15 min drive from the Lodge, during calm days, fishing here is like fishing the saltwater flats. For sure, one of our favorites beats!

Barrancoso

 

FROM THE HEADWATERS TO THE INLET

 

BARRANCOSO RIVER

Every angler has at some point dreamt about wetting a line in crystal clear, remote and untouched water filed with enormous fish. Here at Jurassic  Lake Lodge we offer much more than just fishing for the huge trout that reside within the lake. The Barrancoso river provides the angler with a completely different challenge to the lake, with enormous trout holding in the smallest of pots and pools in preparation to migrate further up river.

The sight and sheer number of fish you can see due to the incredible clarity of the water is completely mind blowing and really needs to be seen to believed. The diversity of pools within the river and changeable water and weather conditions mean that a variety of techniques can prove successful on any given day, from upstream dries to Czech nymphing, each pool creates a different scenario for the angler to approach in their chosen way. Our lodge holds exclusive access to almost the entire river (95%) from the headwaters to the inlet into Strobel lake. There can be no doubt that this is one of the best freshwater systems in the world.

BEATS

Lower sections

 

This has to be by far the most productive section of the river, with huge trout migrating in via the inlet all rear round. Due to this, catch rates on this stretch of the river are truly staggering. As well as the small pools dotted along the river, you have the opportunity to fish in what we like to call the aquarium. A large pool midway up the lower section of the river that the fish use to hold in before continuing on their upward migration. In this section of the river we recommend the use of a 7 weight rod with streamers also being effective in certain stretches of the river and the aquarium.

Medium section

 

Even though, the majority of the larger fish from the lake cannot access this section of the river, it still offers incredible fishing in breathtaking scenery. This section is a 10 km freestone which holds fish up to the 10 Lb mark, still a huge trout by most of other rivers standards.

Upper section

 

There are more than 20 km of the upper section of the Barrancoso river that has still yet to be fished. If you are looking for challenging fishing in some of the most untouched waters in patagonia the this section is certainly ticks all the boxes.

Headwaters

 

Almost unexplored, the Barrancoso headwaters is a 15 km section. Even with a difficult access, the upper section is a dream come true for those anglers looking for a pristine and untouched river
