Fishing Report
December 30 – January 6, 2024 #1

Angler holding a sea-run brown trout at EMB LodgeAlthough for Tierra del Fuego the fishing season begins in November, a month in which we already receive guests only for La Villa, last week we received the first group for EMB Lodge. This was a closed group made up of family and friends with whom, as well as last year, they returned to celebrate the arrival of the New Year 2024.

Clearly fishing itself was not the priority but something more recreational and, since many of the group never fly fished before, everyone was able to experience the magic of fishing the Rio Grande. This season is starting out very promising, with a river in excellent structural and water level conditions, so we have very high expectations for what is to come. We thank our outfitters and coming guests for the trust and for choosing us, so looking forward to seeing you soon. SALUD!
