Cinco Rios Chile

Cinco Rios Chile

When areas of North America, such as Montana, are wrapped in a mantle of cold and snow, Chilean Patagonia basks in spring and summer warmth. In the winter, escape from the Northern Hemisphere and head south to the peaceful depths of Chilean Patagonia.

The season at Cinco Rios Chile runs from the first of November through the first week of May. The word awesome could very well have been created to try to describe this spot in the depths of the incredible Patagonian Andes.

Chile has been the safest, stable and most friendly South American country. The Aysén Region of Chile has preserved a unique fishery that has made it worldwide famous, as the resident brown trout capital of South America. Cinco Rios Lodge is located 10 minutes from Coyhaique, the Capital City of the Aysén Region, right on the banks of the Simpson River.

Out of Cinco Rios, guests fish for wild brown and rainbow trout, as well as King and Coho Salmon. Cinco Rios has lots to offer; fascinating landscapes; a world class fishery; luxurious accommodations; and gourmet Chilean food; a fine selection of Chilean wines and beverages (included); and very experienced bilingual guides.

Seasons & Species

The season at Cinco Rios Chile runs from the first of November through the first week of May. The word awesome could very well have been created to try to describe this spot in the depths of the incredible Patagonian Andes.

Predominantly a Brown trout area, don't be surprised if your day is highlighted with large numbers of Rainbows too.

Itinerary

Cinco Rios Lodge is located 10 minutes from Coyhaique, the Capital City of the Aysén Region of Chile, right on the banks of the Simpson River. Travel to the lodge requires you to simply fly to the Balmaceda airport, 3 hours south from Santiago. Whether you choose to overnight in Santiago on your way down, or plan your flights so that you can connect straight through is your choice. Once you have arrived in Balmaceda, the host of Cinco Rios will be waiting for you at the airport and will drive you the 45 minutes to the Lodge to start your Chile fishing holiday.

Your six full days of fishing will be coordinated with you, your fishing companion, your guide and your host – carefully taking into account your preferences, weather, fishing conditions and what's fishing the best at the moment.

The Rio Simpson, the crown dry-fly jewel of the Coyhaique region, is yours to float just outside the doorsteps of the lodge. There are several different sections that you can choose to float each day. This river is divided into three distinct river types: the gravelly runs and pools of the smaller upper river hold large rainbows and browns, the middle stretches contain long gravel bars where king salmon spawn, and the lower river has long deep boulder-filled runs that provide some of South America's best match-the-hatch fishing to large browns and rainbows.

 

 

Accommodations

Cinco Rios is a full service lodge where up to twelve guests are accommodated each week.

The main Quincho or Great Room invites guests to relax, swap fish stories, and make plans for the next day's angling adventure. Also located in the main building is the dining room where both breakfast and dinner will be served. Here guests can prepare their individual stream-side lunches each morning prior to departing for the day, and to also meet for social hour after fishing.

The new lodge facility has recently been completed, is beautiful and has a commanding view of the Rio Simpson Valley from its dramatically chosen location.

Other Activities

Biking: at Cinco Rios Chile there are mountain bikes available and can be taken to trails that are close to the lodge. That allows the guests to exercise and enjoy the beauty of the surrounding area.

Horseback riding: non fishing guest can enjoy horseback riding on Cinco Rios' sister property – Estancia del Zorro. If interested, you will be driven 45 minutes east from Coyhaique where you will arrive at the Estancia or "the ranch of the fox". There, guests can experience the local wildlife and well as appreciate the life of a sheep working ranch. At the Estancia, there are gentle horses that afford guests safe rides in a gorgeous environment.

Hiking: Close to Coyhaique there are some excellent hiking trails; such as the Trapananda or the Aiken Park, that allow your nature guide to introduce you to the local vegetation, and get a better understanding of the area you are visiting.

Sightseeing: within an hour and a half of the lodge, guests can experience a wide variety of landscapes and places; from the steppe on the east going into the Andes, and down to the coastal rainforest and fjords in the west.

Condor Watching: for the ones that would like to see the majestic Chilean bird, Cinco Rios has a tour called "Waking Up with the Condors". You will need to be prepared to leave Cinco Rios early in the morning and drive east to an estancia that belongs to your host's family, the Galileas , "Punta del Monte". Once there, approximately a 1 ½ hour drive, you will be driven to the summit of the condor cliffs. There you will be able to observe the condors very closely and in their natural habitat, gliding on thermals almost within arm's reach. Beyond any doubt this is an experience of a lifetime.
