Since 2012, we have been annually visiting this unique fishery with hosted groups. It is, without a shadow of a doubt, the best wild trophy rainbow trout fishery in the world.


Estancia Laguna Verde is the finest and most complete lodge operation on the world-famous Jurassic Lake (Lake Strobel). Located on the southern coast of this huge Argentine lake, the Estancia offers fishermen the chance to experience some of the largest rainbow trout in the world as well as beautiful, rugged and untouched landscapes in one of the most remote areas of Patagonia. In a part of Patagonia that is considered very distant and removed, this is far and away the finest option for great guides, huge fish, and very comfortable amenities.

Meet Your Host


Nick Reygaert is the founder of Gin-Clear Travel. He has carved out a career as a celebrated fly fishing film maker for the last 15 years during which time he has travelled extensively in pursuit of the world's best fly fishing. Nick has been travelling to South America since he first filmed Trout Bum Diaries - Patagonia in 2002! It was during that trip that the whispers of a trophy rainbow trout lake, high in the foothills of the Andes, first emerged. But Nick and his team were unable to locate the mysterious lake. Eight years later, Nick returned and finally got to fish the legendary Jurassic Lake, having the privilege to now share this unique place with hosted groups is a dream come true.

All fly anglers pray for the day when they have the chance to fish for large trout. At Estancia Laguna Verde you get that chance every day, and you catch them as well. I’ve never experienced anything like it. I said that I would go back again when I retire, but have found myself re-booking to go back the following year. I would recommend this place to anyone.
