Trip Overview


Estancia Laguna Verde Lodge provides the ultimate fly fishing adventure in the rugged and remote area of southern Patagonia.  With its strategic location, ELV has exclusive access to more than 8.5 miles of “Jurassic Lake,” over 6 miles of the prime fishing areas of the Barrancoso River as well as 6 miles of Moro Creek and the dozen smaller lakes and lagoons chained by Moro Creek.  ELV proudly offers the most diverse and varied fly programs in all the Santa Cruz province.

Estancia Laguna Verde is easily considered to be one of the most prolific trophy Rainbow Trout fisheries in the world.  If one desires to land massive Rainbows in both moving and still waters then ELV lodge is the place.  Strobel Lake, also known as “Jurassic Lake”, offers fly anglers a variety of techniques to entice these beasts to hand.  Whether it’s sight fishing in crystal clear waters to slowly cruising fish, slow stripping smaller nymphs or mediums size streamers, skating big foam mouse patterns or hanging scuds under dry flies, “Jurassic Lake” has it all.

The Lodge main building is a typical “Estancia house” accommodating up to 10 anglers per week. It has 7 double bedrooms with comfortable “en suite” bathrooms, provided with hot water 24/7, each with 2 single beds (Single room lodging and guiding can be provided for an additional cost).

Our spacious living room overlooking Laguna Verde is one of the favourite spots in the lodge. Anglers can sip on a cocktail while enjoying, on the 42´ LCD TV set, slide shows of the catches of the day. Satellite TV connection and a DVD player are available for entertainment, as well. For complete relaxation, we provided that room with a fly tying desk and library to enjoy when not fishing.

There is also a newly built changing room / drying facility located just by the entrance door of the lodge to use before and after fishing. We want to make sure anglers have all the fishing gear (such as waders, wading boots, rods, reels, vests, etc) ready and dried day after day.

The Lodge also offers visitors Satellite and IP telephone and free unlimited wireless Internet access. To avoid extra luggage, anglers can use the computer of the lodge. Windmill generators, and fuel generators as back up, guarantee the energy demands of the Lodge, providing electricity (220 volt.) 24 hs a day. Laundry service is provided twice a week if desired by guests, as well as any other special attention needed or wanted.
