Fishing modalities, equipment and bait
Some recommendations
Some ideal places for fishing


In Atlantic and Central Patagonia a licence is not required for sports fishing and there are no restrictions.

Otherwise, there are regulations in the Andean zone and Tierra del Fuego.

The fishing season for the Provinces of Neuquén, Chubut and Río Negro is from the middle of November to the middle of April, each year.

The licence is for lakes and rivers in these three provinces.

For the Provinces of Santa Cruz and Tierra del Fuego, a different licence is required, where season opens the last days of November and closes at the end of March.

For all cases, the purchase of a fishing licence is mandatory and is available in sports shops or in the municipalities of different locations; also in Buenos Aires at the National Parks Administration in Av. Santa Fe 690. Tel.: (011) 4311-0303.
