Customer Reviews for Fly Fishing on the Maullin River

Fly Fishing on the Maullin River

Your transportation leaves Puerto Montt heading towards the southwest. For approximately 13 miles you’ll drive on paved roads, but the last nine miles to the river lead you over a bumpy road. Arriving at the banks of the beautiful Río Maullín, you will board a small boat for an approximately eight-mile ride. Instruction and proper gear for fishing are included. A high ratio of guides to guests ensures that each participant receives personal attention. Because of landslides during the earthquake of Valdivia in 1960, the Río Maullín can only be navigated by small boats today, so the river’s natural surroundings and its flora and fauna are very much intact. While passing dense and silent forests, you might have luck catching brown trout, rainbow trout and the salmon for which Chile is renowned. A picnic lunch is included.Notes:Although only a few horse flies live near this river, wear light-colored clothing to avoid attracting them. Bring insect repellent. As fish cannot be brought back to the ship, fishing will be catch-and-release. A catch is likely but is not guaranteed. Bring a towel. Tour accommodates two guests per boat. Book early as only three boats are available. Minimum age is 12 years.

With a ratio of two passengers per guide, this trip is appropriate for fishers of all skill levels. I had not cast a fly in 15 years, and my guide still helped me catch fish. We were lucky with the weather, and so we had an incredible day weather -- and fish-wise. At the beginning, you are given a choice of spinning or fly rods -- choose your method and have fun!

We really enjoyed this excursion. We had two people to a pontoon raft that was very stable and it was very easy to fish. We got into the fish early on the trip and caught some rainbow and brown trout and a few local fish that we weren't familiar with. Don't let the price of this keep you from going. It is worth it. The river is beautiful. We saw quite a few birds and the guide made it fun. We were a bit disappointed that we had to use spinner rods instead of fly rods but they had had a lot of rain and we would not have had the amount of fun we did using fly rods. Great trip!!!
