The river


King Salmon have arrived to Southern Patagonic waters. In this lonely place of the Andes they have developed a numerous population that grows every year due to the really low fishing pressure and not having many predators above them. Every year Chinook Salmon swim upriver from the Atlantic Ocean, crossing the whole Santa Cruz river and Lago Argentino (the biggest lake in Argentina) to arrive in Rio Caterina. The river is 8 miles long and fed by glaciers and smaller creeks that descent from the mountains, surrounded by the most amazing and wonderful scenery. The river is not very big, often not more than 20 meters wide but has some deeper and wider sections as well. Fish is spread out both in deep pools and on shallow sections and necks, visible to the anglers setting up for sight fishing sessions especially during the later part of the season.


Wading is fairly simple and no deep wading is needed at all.
