04 Jan Las Buitreras Start Up Report

For those following the social media feeds from the first week of the season in Las Buitreras, here is a first update from our crew on location!
So the season has finally started down here in Southern Patagonia and Las Buitreras Lodge has welcomed its first guests of the season!

Like every year, the first run of sea running Browns showed up in Rio Gallegos by the end of December, a couple of weeks ahead of our first guests.


This year we’ve been blessed with some serious rain lately which has made the water level close to perfect, conditions couldn’t be any better!


As traditions has it Solid Adventures welcomed the first group of guests on the last day of the year to be able to celebrate New Years Eve at the Estancia and then start the new year chasing chromers in one of the best seatrout rivers on the planet!


After the first couple of days more than 20 seatrout has been landed while the number of brown trout – some of them reaching 7lbs – has been even greater and very hard to keep count on. The biggest seatrout landed at the time of this report was a slightly colored 20lb beauty caught by our dear friend Per! We are confident there are more fish in the 20 lbs range to follow and we will have photos and updated numbers in the final week report.
