Justin Witt and Zach Otte have just returned to Patagonia Unlimited’s home base in Rio Pico, Argentina from a few days at Estancia Laguna Verde on Lago Strobel, also known as Jurassic Lake. If you’d like to read about this recent experience and Justin’s day to day life in Patagonia, check out his blog – Just Another Day in Patagonia.
If you would like to experience this incredible place and the opportunity to fish for these remarkable trout, we still have a few open dates in 2011 for Jurassic Lake. Email me today for details.
