Rio Cochrane

Experience Rio Cochrane Fly Fishing:

The Rio Cochrane, an everclear tributary of the majestic Baker River, originates from Cochrane Lake nestled within the Tamango National Reserve. Situated deep in Chilean Patagonia, this river offers exceptional fly fishing opportunities. Rio Cochrane offers varied fishing experiences for the discerning angler: stalking along the banks, strategizing casts near algae beds or submerged logs—a true haven for those with a hunter’s instinct!

The Season

The River’s Treasures

Traversing through algae-laden stretches, the Rio Cochrane conceals substantial silver shadows in its crystal-clear depths. During the prime fishing season from November to March, these pristine waters come alive with the larger trout showing heightened activity post-October spawn. Anglers are drawn to this spectacular time, seeking to make the most of the abundance before these magnificent fish return to the secluded and less-frequented lakes of Patagonia.
