Chubut is a province in southern Argentina located in between the Andes range to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east. The province’s name derives from the Tehuelche word chupat, meaning “transparent,” their description of the Chubut River.
The Corcovado River (where the following series of photos was taken) is characterized by runs of rainbow trout and brook trout. It is one of the legendary fishing sites of Patagonia.
Engaño Lake is situated in Chubut Province, Argentina. According to some fishermen, this area offers the best opportunity to catch trout in all Patagonia.
The mouth of Rio Corcovado into the Lago Vintter offers the best world-class stream trout fishing. Engano Lake is where the following photos were taken.
Located in the Alerces National Park, the Rivadavia River’s spring creeks truly offer a place for fun and success for any angler. The spring creek you see in the following pictures flows into the Rivadavia River, another good fishing spot in Patagonia. Crystalline waters and spooky trout characterize these spring creeks. They are some of my favorite places in the Patagonia region.
Karim Jodor was born in 1984 in El Bolsón, a small tourist city located in the southwest of Río Negro Province, Argentina. The town sits at the foot of the Piltriquitron Mountain in northern Patagonia. Karim has dedicated part of his life to be a fly fishing guide in Patagonia, but now he spends his time traveling the rivers and lakes of this beautiful place to take pictures of the fishing and the landscape in the region. Karim recently started his own business, Vicio Fly Fishing, which is a small fly shop located in his hometown. He considers photography and fly fishing to be complementary, and he says both are great excuses to be in nature.
