Factfile

Cameron Lodge is beautifully appointed, overlooking the Rio Grande valley. It has access to many kilometres of the river, along with a plethora of other rivers and lakes to explore. Beautiful scenery and wildlife abound; even immediately around the lodge. A great place and experience for those looking to escape, even for a short stay combining with a lodge further downstream on the Rio Grande. 

Overview

Cameron Lodge offers an incredible diversity in terms of fishing options but also in terms of species. A huge variety of water to explore, from a myriad of lakes, through to small streams along with over 60 miles of the Rio Grande right down to the border with Argentina! With just six rods per week, this equates to 10 miles of the Rio Grande per rod. 

This is not the place to head for those looking to just target sea trout. Then Argentine side indefinitely holds a better head of fish. However, if you’re after variety at a great price, then you should definitely explore Cameron Lodge. Or, why not tag on a few extra days to your stay by adding e.g. 3 -4 days at Cameron Lodge to your stay at one of the Argentine lodges.

Transfers are easy; you are collected and transferred across the border, which is a simple, streamlined process. 

The lodge is beautifully situated, with a stunning vista over the Rio Grande valley and the Andean mountain range in the distance. Rooms are spacious and finished to a high standard. Single rooms are as standard.

Fishing

Cameron Lodge offers a unique experience on the Rio Grande. A solid week fishing the same river is too monotonous for many, as they seek variety in terms of species and locations. For decades this has remained a mere ‘desire’ on the Rio Grande. However, Cameron Lodge offers just that. Whilst at the lodge, which has no set itinerary allowing you to pick and choose as the conditions dictate, you have access to some lakes that have brown trout, rainbow trout, sea trout and brook char / trout. There are also further river systems and tributaries that the lodge has access to. All this, combined with the lack of fishing pressure, makes for a truly unique experience. If you are looking for a little variety in your week on the island, then this is the one for you, or just to tag on, for example, three days to combine with an Argentine lodge. 

As a result of being on the Chilean side, you have the added advantage of being able to fish at night whilst at Cameron Lodge, which is a big bonus on the Rio Grande when targeting the sea trout.
