Located on the banks of the Collon Cura River and having private and exclusive access to the best spots of this prolific river makes the perfect day for an unforgettable fishing experience.

One of the top rivers in Northern Patagonia, and a Patagonia Outfitters all time favorite, the Collon Cura offers very unique features. This is a large river that collects the waters from various other tributaries as it flows from North to South: Rivers Aluminé, Pulmarí, Rucachoroi, Nahuel Mapi, Quilca, Quillén, Malleo, Catan Lil, Quillquihue , Chimehuin and Quemquemtreu, shed their waters into the mighty Collon Cura River. This is a classic Patagonian plains river that meanders along the high Patagonian steppe offering ideal conditions for profuse resident wild populations of big and healthy rainbows, browns and Patagonian perch. Willow lined banks, sand cliffs and rolling hills shape the Collon Cura River’s unique and attractive landscape. Underwater life is varied and profuse. The Collon Cura River Valley is populated with some of the most spectacular wildlife you’ll find anywhere. We utilize drift boats to cover mileage but fishing can be done both by wading and from the boat in order to reach incredibly productive hot spots. The Collon Cura is a versatile river; it can be successfully fished with streamers, nymphs, dries, attractors and terrestrials. The Collon Cura is prolific and interesting, it is everybody’s river.


Estancia Collon Cura lodge offers 4 double rooms each with its private bathroom, together with a cozy livingroom. The dining area is separate from the lodge giving you the chance to enjoy the giant Patagonian Sky during your one-minute walk from the lodge to the dining room. This place used to be the one where we enjoy listening to other anglers’ experiences while enjoying a 5 star cuisine.
