The best fishing in Estancia Maria Behety

LA VILLA REPORT 

This week has to be looked at as 2 totally different parts... the first 2 days continued the low and clear water and we had great fishingand then on Tuesday the water rose and the river got dirty, changing everything. The Menéndez river, our biggest tributary, blew out pushing dirty water to the Rio Grande. With the raising the water levels the fishing got difficult for a bit. Heavy lines, big flies were required, but we got fish fish on the line anyway. By Friday though, the river was all ready clear again.

The upper river still  remains really low and clear with difficult fishing up there.
