tipiliuke lodge

Two of Argentina ‘s most famous rivers run 25 miles through the property , the Chimehuin and the Quilquihue.
Tipiliuke Fishing Lodge is situated in the Chimehuin river valley, 15 miles from Junin de los Andes and 20 minutes from San Martin de los Andes. It is part of the 48.000 acre Cerro de los Pinos country estate founded in 1909 by the grandfather of the current owners.
Since it is still a fully working farm, guests can participate in harnessing the animals and take part in other rural tasks with the farm workers, or just relax in the beautiful surroundings.
The ranch buildings are very beautiful and unique in their style, including the lodge, the old barns, the chapel and several family houses.
Two of Argentina ‘s most famous rivers run 25 miles through the property , the Chimehuin and the Quilquihue.
We fish the lower Chimehuin where it meanders east in the form of small channels with fast water surrounded by willows and volcanic rock, as well as slow pools on the main channel offering a wide range of possibilities and challenges for our guests to catch these magnificent rainbow and brown trout. The Quilquihue, a third of the size, flows out of the Lolog lake and into the Chimehuin 20 miles North East; this is a freestone stream offering good pocket water fishing during the midseason months, especially when the hexagenia hatches start coming off during January and February.
The average measure for seasonal trout is sixteen to eighteen inches, although fish over 23 inches are not uncommon.
