Welcome to the Limay River Ranch! Located on 80,000 acres out in the high desert landscape of Argentine Patagonia, the Limay River Ranch offers unparalleled access to the crystal clear waters of the Limay tailwater. We pioneered this fishery back in the early 2000s and were shocked by its trout. After taking a few seasons to learn the intricacies of the river, we spent 16 years working on securing the best property in the valley. In 2021, we were finally able to start construction on the lodge. We opened our doors for the 2022 season with 30 years of experience in the outfitting business.

The Limay River Ranch offers supremely comfortable accommodations, a casual atmosphere, and first-class service and food.

With the river right out the front door, logistics won’t limit the fishing day for hardcore anglers, and anglers wanting a more relaxed daily schedule can be easily accommodated.

From the often prolific hatches to monster brown trout, the Limay offers an extremely diverse fishing experience. It’s common to fish multiple rods and techniques over the course of a normal fishing day, using 0X-5X to swing skated dries, drift large attractors, fish the drop-offs and riffles with small droppers, and target rising fish. This Patagonia tailwater offers trout populations on par with many of the U.S. tailwaters, with the same opportunities and challenges offered by such a rich fishery.

Limay River Ranch consists of six individual cabins for a total capacity of 12 clients in double occupancy. There is also a main lodge where the dining room, bar, and living room are located.

Each cabin has an outdoor deck and offers approximately 360 square feet of interior space, with a private bathroom, air conditioning and heating splits, and a wood stove.

Visit the 1,000-square-foot main lodge to gather at the open bar and discuss the adventures of the day, sit on the main deck for a glass of wine, and enjoy the fantastic meals prepared by our chef.

The lodge offers 24-hour 220-volt power produced from an extensive set of solar panels and stored in a bank of lithium ion smart batteries. There is a backup natural gas generator that turns on automatically in the event the batteries run low. In the 2023 season we proudly operated on approximately 85% renewable energy.

The lodge offers free high-speed Starlink internet service with WiFi throughout the lodge and cabins.

Laundry services are available upon request and cost US$10 for a load of laundry (medium-sized bag).
