Kau Tapen Lodge, Argentina Trout Fishing Experience

Kau-Tapen ("House of Fishing" in the Ona language) was the first fly fishing lodge in Tierra del Fuego and represents the standard by which other small group fishing experiences are measured. What started as the brainchild of Jorge Donovan and Jacqueline De Las Carreras more than twenty years ago, has revolutionized the way in which the fishing world views big trout. Located in the heart of the Rio Grande -the best River for Sea Trout fly fishing in the world- Kau Tapen combines the most elegant accommodations with mind-boggling Sea Trout fly fishing, holding 5 world records for Sea Run Trout.

The success of the fishery on the Rio Grande is a modern-day fisherman's Cinderella story. In just a decade, through access control and the diligent promotion of catch and release, average catch results have risen remarkably from less than a fish a day in the early '80's, to multiple fish per day, per person. In the modern era, starting with the opening of Kau Tapen Lodge in the early '80s, the Rio Grande became the most productive sea-run trout fishery in the world.

Combine this extraordinary outdoor experience with the quality of service and comfortable setting of a world class lodge, and Kau-Tapen provides the perfect setting for any discriminating traveler. Privacy, inspiration, and an experience driven by a passion for great trout fishing, offer guests a corporate program that can’t be matched.
