Sea-Run Brown Trout in Tierra Del Fuego
paper texture
Located on the Rio Grande in Argentina, Kau Tapen has long been a mainstay of sea-run brown trout lodges. In fact, this was the first lodge on the river and the first to start hosting anglers. The spectacular chrome sea-run browns make their way from the salt to the Rio Grande to reproduce and Kau Tapen is right there to witness it all. Feed flies to the magnificent fish while enjoying all the stark beauty that Argentina offers. Wading this river is one of the easiest because of its gravel bottom and even flow. After long days on the river return to the comfortable intimate lodge where delicious foods and cold beverages will be waiting.

A large living room provides an intimate area with large picture windows that look out into the Menendez and Rio Grande valleys. Enjoy the fully stocked bar as you swap fishing stories over the large central fireplace. If you do forget a piece of gear the lodge does have a great tackle shop with an excellent selection of rods, reels, flies, lines, and clothing. Additionally, the lodge has a Finnish steam bath, sauna, and full spa for the ultimate day of relaxation.
