Patagonia Baker Lodge Slide Show

Chile’s largest river, when measured by volume, is the Rio Baker. I would have to rate it as one of the most beautiful in the world, also. With the bluest of blue water, the Baker flows out of the Andes via Lake General Carrera, where the view is dominated by year ‘round ice fields, jagged peaks and streamside forests. Our stay at Patagonia Baker Lodge included all day, non-stop streamer action and an evening caddis hatch on the Baker.

We also fished other nearby rivers and took photos of guanacos, a camelid native to Patagonia. The waterfalls and heavy rapids in the Baker were amazing, and I was there in low water. A big thanks to the guides, the chef, and lodge manager, Manual Reyes of Patagonia Baker Lodge, Marc Whitaker, owner of the Santiago fly shop, Rod & Gun and angling buddy Dr. Cristian Vasquez, who all made the trip even more fun. Thanks (glad it was your car, Christian!).
