San Huberto and the Rio Malleo

San Huberto was one of the very first of Argentinaís fishing destination lodges to be enjoyed by visiting American anglers. The lodge is located on a cultivated oasis of the 25,000 acre estancia of the Olsen family. It was originally built as a hunting lodge for the red deer and wild boar of the area but the wonderful fishing found on the Rio Malleo changed that intention! The Malleo river winds itís way through this incredible property and the guest angler has access to over 20 miles of this delightful river.

The Rio Malleo is one of the classic trout streams in the world and one of the very favorite rivers of Guided Connections. The Malleo offers three distinct types of fishing waters. It has Spring Creek-like water conformation on itís upper reaches, fast boulder strewn canyon waters in itís middle section, and riffle/runs with overhanging willows and shadowed pools on itís lower reaches. An angler could easily fish here over a week plus and never cover the same beat, depending on the type water preferred. The fishing is fun with catches averaging between 14-20 inches.

The Malleo is best known for offering dry fly fishing and match the hatch scenarios but the diversity of the river can lend itself to nymphing and even streamer fishing if the wind is up. The wading is relatively easy. The more adventurous angler can fish the canyon of the Malleo with some added walking and wading and come up with some great fish from more difficult to reach holding water.

The Olsen family members are your hosts and see to it that all their guests are well attended. The scenery on this estancia, with the volcano Lanin as a backdrop is great and the entire setting lends itself to a very pleasant fishing experience.

San Huberto is a popular lodge for returning anglers to Argentina and it books up early in the season, so plan ahead!

Rates: Average cost of a weekly trip in this region for 7-nights and 6-days is $4,725 per person, based on double occupancy. Shorter stays are available as is a non-angler rate. Cost includes pickup at airport in San Martin, local transportation, guided fishing, fine dining, excellent Argentine wines and all beverages. Non-inclusions are gratuities and laundry.

A suggested itinerary for this zone is to combine a stay at San Huberto with a couple other locations or lodges to make a stay of one week or more.
