Aluminé River Located on the West side of the Province of Neuquén, in Northern Patagonia, the Aluminé River flows southward out of the iconic Lake Aluminé in the Andes Mountains for around 100 miles before it turns into the Collon Cura River.
On its way South it receives waters from multiple rich streams such as the Pulmarí, Rucachoroi, Quillén and Malleo; hence the Aluminé River really is an aquatic wonderland packed with wild rainbow and brown trout.
Its very name means "Shiny Bowl" or also "shining on the bottom" in Mapuche Indian language. And actually, the river does indeed deliver its defining promise of bright stones beneath the crystal-clear water.
It is an amazing river surrounded by breathtaking landscape, incredible rock formations and spectacular wildlife.
In this chapter I’ll be telling you about the Aluminé River and its different sections; how to fish it during early, mid and late seasons; and which flies and tackle to fish in each season.
