The pioneer of the salmónidos fishing, the biggest attraction that Tierra del Fuego toasts as for the sport of the cane, attraction that reaches justified world fame with the fishing with fly in the Big river, was John Goodal who carried out its study works and siembre between 1930 and 1957 with ovas and juvenile of trouts coming from Chile and San Carlos de Bariloche. Newly August 13 1974 the Station of Piscicultura was inaugurated Olivia River , next to the outlet of that river in the channel of Beagle, very near Ushuaia, dedicated to raise alevinos and juvenile of trout for rivers and interior lakes of the Big Island .
The species sowed with success are the stream trout, trout rainbow and brown or European trout. Alevinos of contained salmon was also sowed and of salmon to salt or salmon of the Atlantic . As much the brown trout as the salmon to salt emigrates to the sea and they return to the place where they were sowed or they were born naturally.
In all the rivers of Tierra del Fuego of permanent flow and in the almost entirety of its lakes is practiced the salmónidos fishing with spinning team or of fly.
The fishing with teams for salmónidos is carried out, also, in each one of the rivers that are crossed when you travels from Big River until Ushuaia. In some places, the scarce flow and the easiness of the surrounding land they invite to the use of team of dry fly, with that which the sport value increases considerably. As for the spinning, it is advisable to use canes with reel front "mini", nylon until the number 30 and a good variety of revolvable teaspoons.
It is advisable the employment of guides or baqueanos that will recommend the most fruitful areas and they will put to covered with possibilities meteorological changes to the members of the trip.
