Villa Pehuenia: Fishing


The fishing season extends from November 15 until approximately Easter in April.

Salmon trout is an exotic specie introduced around the 1900 in the area of San Carlos de Bariloche (Río Negro province) the same as the introduced locked-in salmon one decade later. The trout in the region is in rivers and lakes attracting fishermen from all over the world for its great size, quantity, militancy and its genetic quality. 
Exist in the region three varieties of trouts: brown, brook and rainbow. This last one justifies its name for its reddish, blued, greenish and silver colors.

The second is the Spinning the most utilized for the fishermen for its simplicity and because it can be used from the coast or from a craft.

For those that possess a craft and want to fish in Aluminé lake they will be advised previously about the road that will continue, because the lake is characterized to have in its bottom several irregularities and dangerous prominences. A good idea is hire the services of a fishing guide.
