La Posada De Los Farios//Chile


La Posada de los Farios (“The Inn of the Brown Trout”) was founded in 1994 by American, Rex Bryngelson. Rex and his wife Maike run their charming lodge located on the banks of the Cisnes River. They offer the ideal trip for anglers interested in a more intimate and private angling / wilderness experience. With only three bedrooms, the family-run outfit offers what we believe to be the most personalized and intimate experience available in Chile. The Cisnes Valley and the other venues frequented at La Posada de los Farios are exclusive of competing operations (3.5 hours drive north of Coyhaique) and guarantee a peaceful escape with zero angling pressure from other lodges in the Aisén Region.

This quiet, homey lodge offers a diverse weeklong program as well as shorter visits based upon availability. The typical week would include floating on the Cisnes, walk and wading on spring fed tributaries and hidden lagunas feeding the Cisnes, and spending a day or two fishing one or more private lakes for HUGE browns and rainbows.

There are also trips down to the coastal fjords for trophy native and sea-run browns and rainbows as well as salmon when conditions are favorable. La Posada de Los Farios combines incredible fishing opportunity, stunning scenery and genuine hospitality… the complete Chilean trout fishing experience.

Anglers first travel to Santiago, Chile (SCL) via direct overnight flight (9 hours from DFW) from several U.S. cities including Miami, Houston, New York, and Dallas/Ft. Worth. Travelers connect in Santiago onward to Balmaceda Airport in southern Chile with Lan Chile Airlines. Upon arrival into Balmaceda, guests are collected and driven to Coyhaique for lunch and onward 3.5 hours north to the lodge.
La Posada offers private float trips on the Cisnes River, walk and wade days on smaller tributaries and creeks, classic Chilean laguna fishing, numerous stillwater fisheries, and opportunistic overnight trips down to the fjords for sea run rainbows and browns. Brown and rainbow trout are the predominant species, and dry fly fishing is the norm most often with hoppers and other terrestrials.
The Chilean trout season runs December – April, and you can expect favorable fishing conditions anytime the lodge is open. (See WHEN TO GO below for more details).
If you are a serious angler who prefers a quiet lodge setting with a more “homey” atmosphere and lots of private fishing opportunity, this is the destination for you. With a maximum of six guests, La Posada is for small groups that are interested in an intimate and quiet experience without any social pressure at the lodge – or pressure from other anglers on the water.
6 Nights / 5 Days fishing packages are $3850 per person.
Shorter and longer stay packages available. Packages include all accommodation, meals, beverages, and guided fishing. Additional expenses include, but are not limited to, airfare to Balmaceda, fishing licenses, and gratuities. Note that groups of 4 or more receive a 10% discount. (See RATES for more details).
