This fish came of the banks of the Limay just 10 minutes out of Bariloche.

Jesse10 man thanks!The trip is coming soon and im so stoked!!! As for my spanish, i can hold a small conversation. My wife is argentinian (spelling? or "argentine" my wife doent have a straight answer) so she is my translator. She is very outdoorsy but i think my passion for fishing and especially fly fishing has made her lose interest in even trying anymore...i blame myself. none the less this is an oppurtunity of a lifetime i will take full advantage of! I lived in eagle and summit county colorado for the last 6 years so catching numbers wont be a concern bc the conditions will be very similar. I plan mostly on swinging big bulky streamers looking for the big bite. here is my PB brown trout in colorado 21".

Iím really excited for you! I would try to get a guide if time becomes an issue. Youíre 10,000 miles away, you may never get another chance, so take advantage of every second. Iím only saying this because we flew by the seat of our pants. We stayed for a month for around 3,000 dollars. We took minimal camping equipment, pots, pans, and a small water filtration pump. I was the designated rice cooker. We had rice for lunch way to many times. When youíre trying to make the most of fishing, food was not very high on our list. We packed all of our clothes, gear, and boats in a huge Kelty backpack. My pack weighed 83 pounds when I checked it at the airport. I had to sit down to put the damn thing on. Thatís a nice fish there! Iím stoked for you! Donít let us down! Cast until your arm falls off! Haha

If you can get something to float and arrange a shuttle, yes, the rivadavia is worth the effort. I can't see wading that as viable. But, there's a lot of varied water and argentines are nice people. I'm sure your wife can help w that. An argentine independent guide for a day is a good idea to get an idea.

Streamers will definitely work and there are some huge fish, but 18-20" rainbows were the norm w a few big browns for me. Lakes have big fish. The fish compared to Colorado are big and not overly picky.

Expect to be checked by their game wardens often. It's a good place to go. If you're going late in the year, me and I'll give you a place you can ease for big brook trout.

Here's some guys that did it themselves, sort of: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=x2Icra2QMDE

Just a heads up, if you want to fish that spring creek off of the Rivadavia, you can park near the road and actually walk straight to it. The creek is approximately 100 yards from the parking place. Just giving you options and info.
