Days with Rio Salvaje start early.
While you’re enjoying breakfast in your comfortable Chilean accommodations, our crew is hard at work getting prepared for the day. By the time you’re fueled up and ready to go, lunch has been made, fishing gear assembled, vehicles packed and boats inflated and readied for the day.
Fishing includes a mix of fishing from a raft and wading. Some days you’re casting entirely from our rafts. Some days are pure walk-and-wade, with no boats involved- just you, your guide and your own two feet.
Big rivers, tiny streams, and lakes all provide great fishing options during your trip. Your preferences (walk or float, lake or river, brown or rainbow) and local conditions both impact the waters you’ll cover. Our ability to pick the waters that are in the ‘best shape’ is one of the big benefits of our location!
Most days include a combination of the two- casting from the boat and getting out periodically to land a fish, shoot a photo or work through some particularly fishy runs.
At the end of the day our crew remains at your service, disassembling gear while you head for cocktails, appetizers and another evening of fish tales.
