Posted by yellowdog on Jun 28, 2018 12:42:16 PM

Working with Yellow Dog means that we will always put you in a lodge that best fits your needs and preferences. Where some booking agencies are in the business of filling beds, we are in the business of selling experiences, and something that may work for one angler may not work for another.

Fly Fishing Seasons in Patagonia: When Is The Best Time To Go?

Posted by yellowdog on May 3, 2018 2:38:42 PM

There’s a lot of variables to consider and questions to ask when planning a fly fishing trip to Patagonia.  Among the myriad of questions that we’re asked by clients the most common and, arguably, the most important question is “When is the ‘best’ time to go?” With a long six-month fishing season that extends from November through April, there are significant changes throughout the season to take into consideration and be aware of when planning a trip. From the eager eats on unpressured waters in November and December, through the abundant hatches brought on by the warm summer sun from January to mid-March, to the cool April rain showers that trigger fish to aggressively feed before the onset of the long winter, Patagonia has something for just about every trout angler. We realize that “best time to go” is subjective to specific travel preferences, trip expectations, and fishing goals, so we prepared this general summary and reference guide to help you choose the best time for you to plan your visit.
