Sport fishing in Catamarca

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Two very disparate possibilities gather in this Andean corner. Anything less than eight dikes and other so many artificial lakes keep carps of enough size as to tempt fan at least.

The fishing is almost always made from the banks with bottom cane or to half depth. In the capital, San Fernando of the Valley of Catamarca is informed and they offer the courses to arrive to those corners.

There is another attraction full with characteristic own. The fishing of trouts rainbow in the streams of the high mountain.

 

Trouts of the puna

 

The Puna of Atacama reminds us the height, the salares, the desert. Volcanos dormidoss with moribund glaciers in their hillsides indicate us the direction, as gigantic guardian sentries of the immense highland. In some places, miraculously, the life flourishes. Thousand flamenco they nest in salted lakes. In vegas - you fence upholstered of vegetation - we find ducks, guallatas and plovers. But the surprise is Antofagasta of the Sierra.

This town whose meaning is "House of the Sun" in indigenous language, is head of the department homonymous catamarqueño. This area of our country is not very well-known and fewer frequented. One of their característicaas - apart from being an oasis in the desert - it is in fact the possibility that offers for the practice of the sport fishing of the trout rainbow.

 

River of the Punilla

 

It is born in not very well-known geologic flaws, fed by springs and eternal snow. Their course is serpentine, and to call him laughs it is almost a luxury, because its width rarely exceeds of 4m. and their depth of two. It is tributary of the lagoon of the Alumbrera, closed basin that doesn't receive another source neither has drainage.

Abundant "champas", fox lines, grow in their cold waters. The trouts rainbow don't have too much work in getting their newspaper food that is mainly made up of worms and insects. They watch patiently among the aquatic vegetation and they are very suspicious to any abnormal noise or still to the fisherman's mobile shade.

Difficultly we find exemplary of more than 2 kg. It is imposed, for the atmosphere type and the meek one to reflect of the current of the la Punilla river, to use flying teaspoons. In many occasions they should repeat the you rush three four times... until the fish decides to bite the lure that we pass temptingly before his nose, where we suspect that he is waiting.

If you decide to carry out a trip for the northwest, include Antofagasta of the Sierra. That yes, don't forget that the roads are accustomed to rubble being or earth and that it is need to be informed of their state before going into in search of new horizons.
