Estancia Maria Behety Fishing Lodges are the best and finest fishing lodges at the Rio Grande and one of the best worldwide. These two lodges accept a combined maximum of 18 anglers and alternate daily use of more than 35 miles (102 pools). Only the guests of Maria Behety enjoy the access to all the great pools of the Rio Grande. Most fly fishermen rate the trophy sea-run brown trout on this river the ultimate angling experience. On any other river in the world, the average brown on the Rio Grande would be considered the fish of lifetime.

Tecka Lodge is the original Estancia Tecka homestead building, dating back to the 1920’s. Though newly renovated, the lodge retains the character and colorful history of the traditional estancia. The owners of Estancia Tecka, Adela and Frederico, live nearby and frequently join guests for dinner. Tecka Lodge sits about five minutes from the Rio Tecka, in a sheltered grove of poplars. It is surrounded by big open Patagonian vistas, and working ranch paddocks and corrals. Staying here definitely gives you a window onto of one of South America’s largest operating estancias, with access to some of the best private water anywhere in Patagonia.
Our fishing lodge boasts browns, rainbows, and brook trout in the surrounding river and lake waters. Surrounded by forested National Park land and the Andes Mountains, it is common at Rio Manso to catch fish in the 2 to 4-pound range daily and there is a reasonable chance you will catch a 5 to 10-pound trout during a week of fishing. The lodge itself is very comfortable with outstanding views of spectacular Mount Tronador from every room.
From late February till May chrome bright steelhead enter this river from the ocean in huge numbers.

Steelhead fishing in the Santa Cruz is a profound experience, where anglers can feel the greatness and loneliness of big skies and massive fields of south Patagonia.
