Sea Run Brown Trout
Sea-Run Brown Trout (Salmo trutta) are one of the most widely distributed non-native fish introduced to Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego. The Rio Grande and Rio Gallegos rivers offer the very best in sea-run brown trout fishing. The migratory Sea-Run Brown trout has the beauty of a brown with the ferocious fighting of a saltwater fish. The fish average 8 to 12 pounds. In contrast, the Pacific Salmon spawn and die. Some of these aggressive trout will return to the Rio Grande four to six times. Many of these fish can weigh up to 20 pounds and world records are 30 pounds and more.
