Estancia Aurelia together with the adjacent Estancia Rosita, both of which are owned by the same owner, cover 36000 acres of sheep farming land and they are the only operators licensed by the Tierra del Fuego Government to fish this stretch of the RÃo Grande.
The properties include 6 miles on the RÃo Grande plus 15 miles of river on its principal tributary, the RÃo Menendez, which is also home to comparably fine fish and similar opportunities to catch quality sea-run browns. Aurelia LodgeÂ´s stretches of these rivers presents a diversity of pools, runs, and challenges that will please every fly fisherman. Every year many fish in the 6 to 28 pound range are landed at Aurelia LodgeÂ´s sections of both rivers, and under normal conditions average daily catches per rod are between 3 to 4 fish in the 9 to 15 pound weight range plus some trophy fish weighing as much as 30 pounds.
Both rivers provide equal opportunities at trophy browns, and Aurelia Lodge continually strives to protect both of these wonderful resources with great resolve.
