SEA-RUN BROWN TROUT
ARGENTINA & CHILE
No other river in the world can rival the Rio Grande in Tierra del Fuego in the number of large sea-run brown trout it produces. An average fish will run about 9 or 10 lbs, but 20+ lb fish are not at all uncommon. We work with various excellent lodges the fish here.
Tierra del Fuego’s Rio GRande is probably the best place in the world to catch a trophy size sea-run brown trout. However, the Chilean side of the island also offers incredible fly fishing for resident trout in other rivers and lakes.
Local fishermen consider the Tungufljot Iceland’s answer to the Rio Grande in Tierra del Fuego. It is undoubtedly one of the best rivers in the country to fly fish for large sea-run brown trout. The average size of the seatrout here is about 7 or 8 pounds, but fish in the 10 to 20 lb range are not uncommon.
In addition to being one of Iceland’s most productive salmon rivers Lacá in Kjos also offers excellent fishing for seatrout. From early August through all of September the river receives an healthy run of sea-run brown trout averaging around 5 lbs.
This is fly fishing for brown trout as you dreamt it: huge wild browns often on dry flies in a pristine river virtually untouched by man (other then the 12 fishermen who fish it during the summer from this camp). Lake Enozero serves as an enormous nursery producing huge migratory browns that distribute themselves throughout the river during the summer.
Located on the northern shore of Russia’s kola Peninsula, the Sidorovka River is a fantastic remote destination for MSW salmon as well as sea-run brown trout. A small tent camp caters to groups of 6 fly fishermen at a time that have the entire river to themselves.
Some of the best best trout and salmon rivers run through landscapes of lush forests, jagged mountains and green rolling hills of the northern coast of Spain. PescaTravel offers guided fly fishing for resident and sea-run trout and salmon in the rivers of Galicia, Asturias, Santander and the Basque country.
