The Lodge
Built in 1984, Lodge was designed to offer rods maximum comfort during their fishing trips, as well as easy access to the best pools on the world famous Rio Grande. It accommodates up to 10 guests (and occasionally 12) in en-suite single rooms to ensure privacy and comfort. The lodge has Ten en suite single rooms; some offer a king bed, while some have one queen, and others are furnished with two doubles. A large living room opens up to peaceful vistas of the Menendez and Rio Grande valleys and includes a roaring fire and a well stocked bar. The lodge also boasts a tackle shop with an excellent selection of Sage rods, quality fly reels, flies, lines, Patagonia clothing, and other fishing essentials. In addition, guests have full use of the lodge’s fly-tying table and equipment. Additional highlights include two wading/fly gear rooms, a full spa with jacuzzi, a sauna and Finnish steam bath.
Although most of their lives are spent in the ocean, sea-run brown trout seem to retain more of the eccentricities of resident browns than, for instance, steelhead do of resident rainbows. Moody fish, they must be shown flies the way they want to see them at the precise time that they’re ready to take. The Rio Grande isn’t a big river.
Thus, it’s compatible with a wide range of techniques; critical since a large sea-run brown trout may demand that a fly be fed to it on the bottom one hour but rise to a skating fly the next. Water levels can change from week to week and they generally drop as the season progresses.
 Vary your presentations in each pool fished until you find the right formula of fly, line, drift or swing, and retrieve. Also heed the advice of your guide, whose primary aim is to recommend methods that will help you hook and bring more fish to the net.
Generally, the Rio Grande’s sea-run brown trout seem to lie near cut banks during the middle of the day, though in low water they will also lie in the faster necks of pools. They typically move into these areas during early morning, evening, and nighttime hours.
Generally, “tails in the morning and heads at night” is a good rule. Also look for fish distributed throughout pools on calm, overcast days. On sunny days, one theory holds that sea-run brown trout will take best if they don’t have the sun in their eyes, although this theory, like others, is often affected by the number of fish in a particular pool and the number of “takers.”

Guests fly into Buenos Aires, Argentina, and typically overnight there, with a day to spend touring this wonderful city. Arrival day at Kau Tapen is set for Saturday, so the following morning guests depart Buenos Aires for the flight south. Commercial airlines fly from Buenos Aires to the airport of Rio Grande (3-hour flight), where a lodge representative will meet you. The transfer from Rio Grande airport to the lodge takes 50-60 minutes. On arrival at the lodge, guests are welcomed with cocktails by the entire Kau Tapen staff.

The sea-run brown trout season runs from December to mid-April, which are the summer months in the Southern Hemishpere. December and January are the warmest months, but also traditionally the windiest. The sun can be strong during the day, especially when reflected off the water, but even when the temperatures are warm, the wind-chill factor makes the use of layering gear necessary all season long. Weather moves quickly through this part of the world and it is possible to experience a multitude of seasons in a single day, you’ll want to pack layers and take layers with you each day, adding and shedding as conditions dictate.
The Daily Program
Guests will leave the lodge around 9 o’clock after breakfast, fishing till around 1 o’clock. Following lunch and a siesta (the duration depends on the season), guests return to the river in the late afternoon and fish until dark. Fishing hours will change slightly depending on the time of year.
Upon arrival at Kau Tapen Lodge, you will be asked for your passport so that we can process your fishing license. Lodge managers will make a copy of the first page and paste your photo to the official license. With your paperwork returned and a new license in hand, you’re ready to fish. Fishing license fees are included with your stay.
The summer climate of this southern region of South America includes a wide range of temperatures and weather conditions. We recommend layering, so you can add or remove garments during the day.
• Fleece jackets
• Thermal underwear
• Polar neck warmers
• Wool or synthetic socks
• Wool cap for cold weather
• Flannels and Polartec shirts are ideal for the river, but you’ll inevitably change to something lighter back
