Is there a better way to start a couple of days at Jurassic Lake than coming right from Las Buitreras, chasing chrome searun brown trout? This groups answer was clear… having a good time there and no plans to change the game plan for Jurassic either…
The first morning already revealed the shinny treasures of the lake and might have been one of the best ones this week. Counting already 45 fish amongst the 5 of them just before lunch. Of course the appetite was overpowered by the urge to catch some more fish… eating quickly just to run even quicker down to the beach again. The quicker the better because the supposed hot spot „ The Cochinos Bay“ was taken fast – occupying it means also cutting the way off for the big guys who tent to migrate into the river around sunset.
Still casting in the fading light, the group counted already 94 fish in the book…
Day number two was dictated by heavy wind; hence we hiked upstream to ambush some brutes with dryflies and egg-pattern. As usual, with good results. 74 fish taken – biggest one a 18lb buck on a dryfly!
Seeing the lake without wind at all feels unusual. The last day just started like this before the weather turned into a serious storm with peaks up to 120km/h. Without doubt one of the strongest storms we’ve had this season! A longer lunch with the chance for the wind to die off, which didn’t happend. Still 69 strom trout couldn’t resist! Charles Russell’s opinion: “The best fishing holiday of my lifetime, it has got everything. Such friendly and professional service. These guys have a sense of humor and yet they are serious about their fishing. The country side is spectacular and fishing the river at midnight with the full moon dissapearing behind the escarpment is a memory I will never forget!“
