The seasons in northern Patagonia are opposite of those in North America. Our fishing season runs from November through May, which translates to late spring, summer and the beginning of autumn in the northern hemisphere.

Dec 7 - 14: 2 spots

During the summer months, late December through early March, the average daytime temperatures vary between 66 F and 86 F. Nighttime and early morning temperatures are usually cooler so you may need an extra layer of clothing before the sun warms thing up.

Spring and autumn are a bit cooler with daytime temperatures reaching into the 70’s F with the morning and nighttime lows in the low 60’s F. Having a vest or jacket handy is typically suggested for the evenings and mornings.


Located on the banks of the upper Chimehuin River, Spring Creek Lodge has six cabañas each featuring two individual bedrooms with a shared bath, living room and outdoor porch. Gourmet dinners are served in the clubhouse while you enjoy the stunning views of the Lanín Volcano. The clubhouse also has a common sitting area and bar for you to enjoy a glass of wine or your favorite beverage. Upstairs presents a wine tasting room and a boutique with one-of-a-kind pieces designed and crafted by local artists and artisans.

Every morning, prior to breakfast, a member of the team will arrive at your cabana to get the fireplace going and deliver coffee.
