As Vice President of Estancia Laguna Verde at Lake Strobel in Patagonia, Argentina, Donald Ray Bernard provides visitors the opportunity to catch large rainbow trout averaging four to eight pounds, although fish twice that size are not unusual. Due to the size of the fish it contains, the lake is known worldwide as Jurassic Lake. The 65-square-kilometer lake has ideal biological conditions to produce these gigantic rainbow trout. Far from populated areas, the lake’s habitat remains pristine.
The Estancia Laguna Verde lodge sits on the south shore of Lake Strobel, providing comfortable lodging and delicious cuisine. Along with fishing in Lake Strobel and nearby rivers, guests can go bird watching, participate in trekking tours, and embark upon four-wheel-drive adventures. Warm weather at the lodge begins in December and extends through March. Fishing season lasts from November through mid-April.
