Strobel Lake, Argentina Fly Fishing Lodge

Strobel Lake looks like saltwater, but it is teaming with small scuds and massive rainbow trout below the surface, and they are caught on a regular basis by our anglers.

This outfitter is the obvious choice for serious anglers looking for a fishing trip of a lifetime. Come sometime between November through Mid-January because the big fish will be stacking up near the mouth of the Barrancoso River. The fishing this time of year can be truly astounding.

  • Multiple double digit rainbow trout a day is the norm! With chances at fish in the 20’s.
  • Peak times for fishing on Stroble Lake are November through mid-January.
  • With excellent food and comfortable accommodations, this is a trip of a lifetime!

Estancia Laguna Verde also offers an excellent cuisine, in charge of its exclusive chef and sous chef. We set ourselves the goal of being ambassadors of the richness of the gastronomic cultural diversity of our immigrant and local history delighting our visitors with typical Argentinean tasty delicacies.


Strobel Lake, Argentina

Strobel Lake

Strobel Lake or as some have come to call it, “Jurassic Lake” is one of the most remote, wild and best fishing destinations in the world! In fact, on a recent hosted trip, the average fish weighed an astounding 12 pounds…and we caught dozens of them!

The Barrancoso River

The Barrancoso River is a typical mountain freestone river, with clear water and big boulders holding gorgeous trout in its beautiful pools, pocket water, flats and runs. You will also have access to Moro Creek and over 12 smaller lakes and lagoons.

When to Go

Come sometime between November through mid-January because the big fish will be stacking up near the mouth of the Barrancoso River. The fishing this time of year can be truly astounding.

The Fishing Lodge

The lodge is strategically located only a cast away from the fishing and is a typical “Estancia house” accommodating up to 10 anglers per week. It has 7 double bedrooms with comfortable “en suite” bathrooms, provided with hot water.

Get ready for some excellent cuisine, Estancia Laguna Verde employs some of the best chefs from the region preparing the finest meals with local flavors. Shore lunch will be prepared every day at a variety of structures built by the lodge. Hot, delicious meals enjoyed with a beer are a great way to relax for an hour while fishing.

The Guides

The guides and staff here are great. They will really do everything they can to make sure your week is special and you get into fish. The guiding is usually done two guests per guide.

When you’ve already caught 6 or 7 huge trout and it’s past the time to go back to the lodge so you look at your guide to motion if it’s time to go and he says “nah, keep fishing I want you to catch one more” that’s the sign of a great guide who wants to be there and truly loves his profession. The staff works very hard for you and they have a long season. Be sure to tip them appropriately to show your appreciation.

Getting There

The travel to the Estancia is not difficult it is however a fairly long drive from the airport.

It is required to overnight in El Calafate the day before your trip and some of my clients decide to overnight a day in Buenos Aires as well. It just depends what type of traveler you are and how much time you have. International flights depart from Los Angeles, Houston, Atlanta, New York, or Miami. The main airlines are LatAm or Aerolineas Argentinas.

It needs to be noted that Buenos Aires has three airports. You will likely fly into EZE and then need to transfer across the city to AEP, which is about a 45-minute drive. From here you will fly to El Calafate and take a $15 dollar taxi ride to your hotel.
