Slide Inn Hosted Trip – December 2023

Join us on an adventure to Patagonia, Argentina to fish the fabled waters around the town of San Martin de los Andes.  We will fish three legendary Argentine rivers: the Chimehuin, the Collon Cura, and the Limay tailwater.  We will float and wade these rivers with expert outfitter Chocolate Lab Expedition and their local guides, staying on sprawling estancias along the way. Each stop offers extensive private river access, allowing us an exclusive opportunity to these fantastic fisheries. We will be lodging at 3 exceptional ranches throughout the week, each with comfortable accommodations, exceptional Argentine meals, and fine local wines.

Chocolate Lab Expeditions has guided in Argentina since 1996 and they have one of the most knowledgeable and experienced crews you will find. Their entire guide staff is bilingual which helps ensure every day on the water is a success. Galloup’s Slide Inn has hosted trips through Chocolate Lab Expeditions since 2019 and the consistent quality of fishing, cuisine, and accommodations that CLE provides keeps us coming back. We have developed a great relationship with Ron & Vanessa Sorensen, the owners of CLE, who work with us to design the best possible trips for our clients.
