Lake Yelcho is known as one of the best fly fishing circuits in the world due to the abundance of trout, variations in the coastline and the temperate climate. The biggest trout caught to date weighs an incredible 17 kilos! (That’s a national fly fishing record.) This Lake is born of the water of the River Futaleufú, originating from the Río Grande in Argentina and of many other affluent. Of the Lake Yelcho is born the river with the same name
that flows into in the bay of Chaitén toward the sea. The fishing is very varied; they can be captured Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Salvenilus, Fontinalis and Salmon Chinook, Atlantic and Coho.
