Chimehuin River

The Chimehuín meanders through the valley at Estancia Tipiliuke and forms numerous channels separated by small islands. We also fish stretches of the smaller Quilquihue River.

Neuquen - Argentina

Estancia Tipiliuke, a 49,500-acre family-owned ranch that stretches along 8 miles of the Chimehuín River and 4 miles along the Quilquihue River. Both rivers are famous worldwide for their fish and magnificent water. Today the Chimehuín offers superb dry and wet fly fishing. It is challenging yet rewarding. Big browns are regularly caught as well as big surface feeding rainbows.


Tipiliuke Lodge. The lodge has 9 exquisitely furnished double rooms, each with its private bathroom, comfortable living and dining areas and an attractive bar where experiences are shared every evening. The cuisine is superb. In addition to your Patagonia Outfitter’s guide who will be with you every day, the lodge hosts, together with their friendly and efficient staff will see to your every request. There is another house available for accommodation throughout the season. It is known as “The River House” . It is a charming house, ideal for groups of friends or families. This elegant and sophisticated house has four double bedrooms with private bathroom plus comfortable living and dining rooms. The house is in a very secluded and peaceful spot, about a 100-yard walk from the Chimehuín River. Tipiliuke is also a great place for guests who may be traveling with non-fishing spouses or the more casual fisher-person. Horseback rides and treks as well as sight seeing or even shopping tours can be arranged due to its proximity to San Martín de los Andes.
