Located near the historic city of Coyhaique, in the peaceful depths of the Chilean Patagonia, Cinco Rios Chile is a fly fishers dream come true! A full service lodge accommodating up to twelve guests is your home away from home.Our unique location on the banks of the Simpson River and spectacular view of the majestic Patagonian Andes gratifies our visitors with the pleasure of an endearing setting.








Fish for rainbows and browns in waters that, in some cases, only recently have been discovered.Fly fishing streams in this area are within 45 minutes from Cinco Rios Chile. The streams offer diverse fishing; incredible, exciting dry fly actions; and, challenging sight fishing in pristine, clear waters. Some brown and rainbow trout, only accessible by our jet boats because of limited roads, have never seen a dry fly.

On your way to nearby rivers and lakes, you may encounter local huasos or cowboys driving their cattle or sheep along the roads or into the hills. You might think you are lost in the wild west of days gone by.



Simpson River

It is probably the most famous river in the Aysén region; the Simpson River tends to fish like classic Montana freestone and has significant caddis and mayfly opportunities. Browns and rainbows from 14-22 inches are your usual catch. However, trout up to 30 inches have been caught on a fly. King Salmon run this river from early January through mid March. We’ve taken Kings from the Simpson that push 45+ pounds. Our Lodge is located right on the Simpson River banks, then on top of enjoying the most gorgeous views of the Simpson River with the Andes peaks as a background, you will be able to finish a great drifting and arriving right in front of the lodge, where the Pisco sour will be waiting for you.

Paloma River

The Paloma River is a river that begins at the Desierto lake and runs northwest until it meets the Desague River about 15 miles away. A glacial freestone flows iridescent blue water and provides fantastic dry fly and streamer action. Predominantly a brown trout fishery, the introduction of rainbows in the late nineties has proven to be a success. Fish from 14-23 inches are taken from the crystal, clear Paloma. We generally drift at the Paloma River.

Azul River

Located between Lago Azul and Lago Desierto, the Rio Azul is accessible by boat as it gets you into a remote area. Flowing beneath the shadows of Cerro Castillo, it is probably one of the world’s most beautiful fishing locations. Browns from 17-21 inches are quite common with even larger fish that are taken. Jet boats take you to and from the Rio Azul, however, we prefer to wade once we arrive.

Desagüe River

The Rio Desague drains Lago Elizalde and runs for about five miles until it enters Lago Caro. Within this short stretch of river are browns and rainbows 17-23 inches with many larger trophies lurking in its depths. Jet boats will run into this remote river for some spectacular scenery and dry fly fishing.

Emperador Guillermo River

It is one of the jewels of the area. There are many pools and riffles loaded with hungry trout, averaging 12 to 16 inches, sometimes over a 100 fish a day.

Other Rivers

Mañihueles, Ñirehuao, Mogote, Río Blanco, Río Aysén, Río Coyhaique, Lago Elizalde, Lago Azul among many others





Belonging to cold and crystalline water, Rainbow Trout were introduced into the Patagonia in the 19th century. Great fighters as they bite the bait, Rainbow Trout are highly prized by sport fishing experts. His colorful scales give shape to a true rainbow when you collect the line after his capture …Unforgettable!!

Coming from the Pacific Ocean, large quantities are found in our rivers. Preparing for reproduction, the males have jaws, teeth and a hooked nose that surprises fishermen. There have been species found weighing about 15 kilos (33 lbs) Amazing!!




It may take 3 to 5 years in the ocean before they reach our rivers to breed and reproduce in the same freshwater that they were born in. We found species at about 130 cms (51 inches). Incredible!




Many anglers take the “Red Eye” flights from the United States to and from Santiago, Chile (SCL) are available on American Airlines, Delta or Lan Chile.

From there you fly by Lan Chile 737 jet to the Balmaceda Airport (BBA), three hours south from Santiago.
