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. The new Lodge has exclusive access to more than ten miles of coastline of the world-famous Jurassic Lake. 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 ten-mile exclusive area has some really beautiful waters. There are big bays, areas with islands, deep waters, 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.
