The Estancia San Huberto encompasses tens of thousands of acres, and over thirty five miles of catch and release rainbow and brown trout fishing on the Malleo (pronounced Ma-Jay-O) River. The Malleo is about the size of the more wadable portions of the Madison, a bit smaller than the Deschutes, and a bit wider than the Upper Sacramento. San Huberto was once a hunting lodge and a century of mounted red stag trophies grace the wall. San Huberto is owned and managed by Carlos Olsen and his charming wife Carmen, wonderful and gracious hosts. The Olsen’s ranch offers what most consider the best dry fly-fishing in the region.

Fishing on the ranch is limited to a maximum of 12 guests that can be accommodated at the lodge. An indoor barbecue highlights each week’s fishing, and each day’s fishing is accented by fabulous meals and can be recounted at one of the most comfortable cocktail hours on the continent. San Huberto Lodge is a grand, old-world lodge, full of traditions, Argentine culture and fond memories. During the months of November-December fishing takes place on a tributary of the Malleo, Huaca Mamuil or Malleo itself. From January until April the Malleo River offers heavy insect hatches and very good quantities of fish. The average weight of a trout on the Malleo is 2 to 6 lb., browns and rainbows.
