Aluminé River – Lanín National Park

With the omnipresent conical volcano Lanín dominating the breathtaking views in all directions it is definitely the centerpiece for this spectacular national park. Located in the province of Neuquén, Argentina with its native patagonian forests and many lakes and rivers it becomes another fly fisherman’s dream playground. Some of the lakes and rivers located in the park are Huechulafquen the parks biggest lake, and the headwaters of the famous Chimehuín river. Also in its borders are the Aluminé, Paimún, Lolog, Lácar, Meliquina, Quillén, Hermoso, Tromen, Escondido, Machónico. It is here that one can have the possibilitiy of connecting with very selective wild rainbows, browns, and brook trout, also the occasional landlocked salmon. Still extremely untouched by development if possible one should really try to camp to take in the whole effect of this magnificent national park. Although, very close by are the three towns; San Martín de los Andes, Junín de los Andes, and Aluminé with wonderful lodges and cabanas. If you have the chance Patagonia Flies highly recommends a float trip down the majestic Aluminé river with Diego Buzzurro’s guide service.
