SAN MARTIN DE LOS ANDES
Lolog is a beautiful fishing area. Located about 12 km northwest of the city of San Martín de los Andes, it contains the city's main supply of pure drinking water. For this reason it was named one of the Protected Nature Areas in 1994.
It is surrounded by high hillsides (not surpassing 800 meters above sea level), blanketed in forests of colihue cane, as well as high trees, such as roble pellín, rauli and cypresses that paint the hillsides in copper and orange in fall. Around it animals such as red deer, wild boar, foxes, hares and wild ducks are frequently seen. Its grayish-green waters abound with salmon.
It is always difficult to choose a spot for a summer vacation.; the sport fisherman must solve an equation that does not always satisfy the whole family group. However, Lolog, the "jewel of Neuquén" combines all the factors in such a way that the whole family can enjoy a spectacular vacation.
The majestic landscape of this region, dotted with prime watercourses and lovely lakes provides plenty of reasons to remain engraved in the memories of its visitors as a peacefully idyllic resting spot.
Fishing in Lake Lolog
This part of Patagonia is world famous as one of the main natural fishing areas for sport fishing enthusiasts. This activity is practiced in its three variants: spinning, fly trolling and fly casting.
Lake Lolog has returned to the abundance of its "golden days". Nowadays its grayish-green waters are teeming with salmon. Trout are also abundant in both quality and size - you will find variants such as brown and rainbow , as well as perch, salmón encerrado and fontinalis.
These features include the whole extension of the lake, particularly the mouth of the Quilquihue river, and its whole course. The area is ideal for both novices and experts.
As well as setting up on the banks of the Quilquihue only a stone's throw away from Lake Lolog, the visitor will not only be able to fish along this river, but also, in the company of our guides, along all the rivers in the area, such as the Aluminé, Caleufu, Chimehuin and finally, the Collón Cura.
Besides, the abundance of min-pesqueros (OJO; QUE ES ESTO) prevents hassle, adding to the restfulness and ease of the activity for beginners.
Obviously, the virtues of the Quilquihue will leave the experienced fisherman delighted, since he will be able to find a wide range of quality trout weighing an average of one kilo, and, if he's lucky, he may fish really large specimens.
Both styles of fishing can be practiced from a boat. Even approaching the 26 km shoreline and casting towards land gives good results. Any random corner of this lake is likely to harbor a major trophy.
