Fly Fishing Trancura

Mónica Pons Marcelo Sola

This great river is a treasure trove of species. Experienced guides will help you improve your skills and guarantee incredible catches.

Fly Fishing Trancura River - Pucón

For ‘trout bums’ casting at the lakes and rivers around Pucón is a must. What could be better than an outing led by expert guides?
We headed to the lower stretch of the Trancura River with Mario Alarcón, a well known local guide. We soon reached the swift flowing waters and calm pools where we would try to hook rainbow and brown trout with barbless dry flies.
The spectacular native vegetation and the magnificent Villarrica Volcano in the background provided the perfect setting. Far from the hustle and bustle of the city, we devoted ourselves to finding the best spots.

Mario is a real expert whose family has been fishing and guiding for three generations. He knows the waters like the back of his hand and constantly helped us choose the right flies, lines and moves to improve our style and achieve fantastic catches. Besides the boat, he provided waders, rods, lines and a box full of colorful flies and priceless comments. Everything we needed to enjoy a perfect day.
After casting from the shore, we got into the rowing boat and down we went along the swift flowing waters of the gorge, its pools, islands and beaches. When we reached a bend, we tried wet flies. ‘You must always consider which insect the trout feeds on and choose the most similar fly,’ said our guide. Mario was flawless, whenever he cast, a trout bit and the fight between man and fish began.

You might not always catch big trout at the Trancura but they will always put up a fight. Catch and release is mandatory, so every fish is set free as quickly as possible after it has regained oxygen.
The major premise is respect for the environment and the conservation of the species. Mario’s smile told us how much he loved sharing this outstanding fishing area in southern Chile.
