Across the border from Esquel, Argentina, and deep into the Coyhue Forest of the Tenth Region of Chile, flows the azure- depth of the Futaleufú River. A world away from the hustle and bustle that even sleepy Esquel represents, the “Big River” (Futaleufú’s translation from the native Tehuelche tongue) rolls along amid some of the most unspoiled mountain scenery on the planet. South of the Chilean Lake District, Futaleufú is a standalone fishery. This giant river grows healthy stocks of Rainbow and Brown trout that are fed by abundant hatches of Mayfly, Caddis, and Stoneflies. A heavy resident stock of fish and great hatches combined with classic fly water make the Futaleufú a trout fisherman’s paradise!
