The Limay Medio River (Middle Limay River) has an extraordinary population of Brown Trouts and Rainbow Trouts, both resident and migratory, highly combative and very healthy, which make it one of the most productive rivers in Northern Patagonia. Without a doubt, the reason for such high productivity is the large amount of fodder and insects, which we can find there given the characteristics of the river, and are part of the main diet of its magnificent Trouts.
