The Manso River runs through the Nahuel Huapi National Park, starting in the heart of the Andes Mountain range. The Manso river is surrounded by a dense humid forest. Without doubt, one of the most beautiful landscapes of Patagonia, with crystal clear water as never seen before.

The Manso River float trip is highly recommended for the novice fly fisherman. You won´t need a long cast to get to the trout. It´s a great chance to wade: every pool of this river has a small rock bottom with a gentle current.

best boats

Trout Bariloche

We use cata-raft boats instead of drift boats to fish the Manso River. Some sections have small rapids that are safer to row with a cata-raft. As the casts will be shorter, fishing from drift boat is not as important as they are in the Limay River.

Fly Fishing

Trout Bariloche

The Manso is a medium size river, crowded with medium and small size rainbow trout. The fishing will be essentially done with floating lines, nymphs or dries.
Fishing resident brown trout can be very challenging but incredible fun at the same time.
