New Lodge at Jurassic Lake

Lago Strobel Lodge

Giant Rainbow Trout Fishing

Estancia Laguna Verde's new Lodge is a great value! The Lodge is only 300 yards from Jurassic Lake. You are able to fish the NE side of the lake within a few miles of the Lodge every day. You'll also get in one day of fishing on the Barrancoso River, the only tributary of Jurassic Lake.

Jurassic Lake

Angler with Jurassic Lake Rainbow Trout

Lago Strobel is also known as Jurassic Lake. Rainbows here average ten pounds; some are over twenty. TThe new Lodge has exclusive access to more than ten miles of the world-famous Jurassic Lake coastline. Over 27,000 acres of crystal clear waters, the Lake's unique conditions are the perfect habitat for the best giant wild rainbow trout fishing in the world.

The Lodge's exclusive area has some really beautiful waters. There are big bays, areas with islands, deep waters, and sandy beaches. Some places are becoming known as big fish locations. Serrana Bay, a larger bay, is fishable during any wind condition, as it is extremely protected and great fishing. The new lodge is an 80-minute drive from the parent lodge—Estancia Laguna Verde.
