WE ARE JURASSIC LAKE

Jurassic Lake is the original world-class fly fishing lodge located on Strobel Lake, one of the most remote and wild places of Southern Argentine Patagonia. Famous for its incredible trophy rainbow trout fishing in pristine waters, the lodge is strategically located on a protected bay within walking distance of the mouth of the Barrancoso River, Strobel Lake’s only significant tributary. This inlet is home to the most productive waters of the entire lake and is easily one of the very best trophy rainbow trout fisheries in the world.

WALKING DISTANCE FROM THE WORLD'S BEST TROUT FISHING

After a day spent catching the largest rainbow trout of their lives, guests of Jurassic Lake Lodge return to our comfortable, modern lodge to tell stories and enjoy the famous hospitality of Southern Patagonia. 

 

Completely remodeled and expanded in 2016, our lodge has room for up to ten visiting anglers. Guests stay in single and double occupancy rooms, each with private bathrooms and a hot shower. 

 

Our main lodge sits on a quiet bay overlooking the mouth of the Barrancoso River and is only a short walk from the most productive water on all of Strobel Lake. Meals are hearty and generous and accompanied by a brilliant selection of Argentinian wines. A full bar is available and includes an extensive collection of single malt and blended whiskies for guests to enjoy as they reflect upon their day on the water.

 

Despite the windswept and remote location, the lodge remains connected to the outside world. Amenities include satellite television, satellite phones and unlimited wireless internet access. Off-grid electricity is provided around the clock by our solar power system.

PRIVATE CHARTER FLIGHT

ONLY 1 HOUR AND 30 MIN FLIGHT

GETTING HERE IS EASY NOW

For years, guests of Jurassic Lake Lodge endured a seven-hour drive across the Patagonian Steppe of Southern Argentina on their way in and out of the Lodge. The remote location was worth it because of the incredible numbers and size of the rainbow trout in Strobel Lake and the Barrancoso River. 

 

Those days of long travel are now largely a thing of the past. A few years ago we built a private landing strip on our property and began to fly visiting anglers in and out of the Lodge on a privately chartered plane. The journey that had previously taken most of a day now is only an hour and a half long. This means much more time spent fishing and relaxing at our beautiful lodge instead of days spent traveling.

Ground transfer from El Calafate

If the chartered flights don’t work for your schedule, ground transportation to the Lodge from the city of El Calafate is easy to arrange. In fact, for many years, it was the only way in and out of the Lodge! The drive takes about seven hours. There are several flights joining Buenos Aires and El Calafate every day. It is also possible to make custom driving arrangements from any other location in Patagonia if that is required.

Direct charter flight from Comodoro Rivadavia

Getting to Jurassic Lake Lodge has never been easier. Every Saturday morning our exclusive charter service departs from the coastal city of Comodoro Rivadavia. The flight to our private airstrip at the Lodge only takes an hour and a half. There are four flights daily between Buenos Aires and Comodoro Rivadavia.

Private charter flight

If the regular Saturday flight from Comodoro Rivadavia doesn’t fit your itinerary, it is easy to make other arrangements. Every season since we built our airstrip, we’ve helped anglers fishing in Bariloche, Esquel, Tierra del Fuego or anywhere else in Patagonia, arrange private charter flights to and from the Lodge.

LOCATION

 

MAKES THE DIFFERENCE

“-“ It didn’t take a rocket Scientist to figure out where to build the original Loop Camp. Within stumbling distance of the greatest trout fishing hotspots in the world was a logical choice and one which had served them well and continues to separate this operation from others on the lake”- K.M. ”

WHAT MAKES JURASSIC LAKE SO SPECIAL? 

Our remodeled and comfortable lodge; a private airstrip for chartered flights; exceptional food, drink and hospitality; and hard-working, skilled guides all make the experience at Jurassic Lake Lodge unforgettable for our guests, but none of that would matter if the fishing wasn’t so consistently incredible. It is the Lodge’s perfect location that provides our guests with exclusive access to this amazing trophy trout fishery.

 

Jurassic Lake Lodge was the first dedicated fishing program developed on Strobel Lake. Because of this, we were able to secure access to all of the most productive water for our guests. The Lodge is located near the mouth of the Barrancoso River, on a protected bay of Strobel Lake. The Barrancoso is the lake’s only major tributary and huge trout move through this food rich portion of the lake all season long. From the Lodge it is only a short walk, or a brief drive, to some of the best rainbow trout fishing anywhere in the world. Our catch rates and the size of fish is unmatched.

 

The majority of the Barrancoso River and the very best shoreline waters of Strobel Lake are on our property. Our guests enjoy private access to these waters and rotate through these premier beats without any other competition for space. Join us next season and see it for yourself. We cannot wait to share this astounding fishery with you.
