The Best Places to Fish in South America

If you ask a fisherman where he would find the best fishing in North America, probably you get a different answer from each fisherman who ask.

Fortunately, South America in general can be divided by climatic zones, which can be separated by the type of terrain you would like in your fishing trip and the species of fish you want to catch.

If you are looking for places for trout fishing, then you should go to southern Argentina; for gold, go north of Argentina, Bolivia and southern Brazil; the peacock bass can be found in northern Brazil and southern Venezuela; and Bonefish in the archipelagos of Venezuela.

For sea trout, the best place to go is Tierra del Fuego, Argentina. These fish were originally introduced into local rivers by farmers with nostalgia for Iamaccepted in the 1930s, which were transported by boat from Loch Leven in Scotland.

The Southern Ocean is famous for having some of the seaweed with higher heat intensity than anywhere, where trout gorge themselves in the winter months. Often these fish reach 25 pounds or more. In fact, the record set in Rio Bravo is 35 pounds. The fishing season runs from December to April. There are only three rivers to consider to catch these beauties:

Rio Grande: El Grande is a great river that meanders through open tundra with little shelter. The conditions and wind can be tough, but the rewards are immense. This river, probably still has the best performance and larger fish.

Gallegos River: This river is smaller than the Great, and not really on the island of Tierra del Fuego, but at the southern tip of mainland Argentina. Also runs open tundra, and is less difficult than the Great. This river has more power, and it is important to visit the appropriate shelter at the right time of the season.

Irigoyen River: Smaller than the other two, this impressive and narrow river is sheltered from the winds of Patagonia, which run along its length. Thrown short, targeting structures and pools, makes this the most technical of the three, but the most charming. Do not be fooled by its size. Fish 20 pounds and are frequently caught.
