San Jose Lodge, owned by billionaire media mogul Ted Turner, is a beautiful classically styled Patagonian farmhouse that sits on a 24,000-acre working ranch on the island of Tierra del Fuego in southern Argentina. The lodge has an intimate family-style atmosphere with the added touch of warm and welcoming service, delicious chef-prepared cuisine paired with fine Argentine wines, five (5) comfortable and spacious rooms with private ensuite bathrooms, and two (2) inviting lounge rooms with fireplaces for guests to enjoy. The San Jose experience is like being a guest at a friend’s vacation home or fishing property than the one you would find at a standard fishing lodge.
Trucha marrón, Sea-Trout (Trucha Marrón Anádroma)
With annual returns of 50,000+ fish and an average size exceeding 8 pounds, no other river in the world can rival the Rio Grande in Argentina's southern territory of Tierra del Fuego as the best place on the planet to catch sea-run brown trout. Combine the river with the best returns and the largest average size of sea-run brown trout with easy access to 12 miles of rested pools from a comfortable homestyle lodge designed for four (4) anglers per week, and that’s the San Jose Lodge fishing experience.
