Monster King Salmon in crystal clear glacial waters, wild browns and rainbows with the Osorno Volcano as your backdrop……sound appealing then join Jonathan Boulton on this journey to spectacular Chile.

Fishing the cool clear waters of the Petrohue river gives the angler opportunities for hooking into beautiful aggressive wild browns, rainbows and when they are running, which is in March, a crack at the immensely powerful King Salmon (Chinook).

A split trip between two river systems, with sweeping views of the famous Osorno Volcano, you will travel out each day and drift and fish the full day out on the water. Two anglers to a drift boat, superb riverside lunches and return in the evening to discuss your catch over some of the worlds finest steaks and excellent Chilean Seafood with a bottle of red.

Fresh sea run King Salmon run up the Petrohue in March and can readily be taken on heavy sunk flies and heavy single or two handed rods. The wild browns rise readily to surface attractors and the wily rainbows are always a great relief if you have just spent the last hour sweating over the sheer strength of a 40lb King.

We fly to Santiago and then onwards to Puerto Montt, where we are met and transferred by road to the lovely town of Puerto Varas. The views are quite something, with the almost 9000ft high Osorno Volcano and the river in your view as you sip your morning coffee ready for a day battling big fish on big water.
