The season’s been off to a great start at Chime Lodge, with excellent water conditions across the Chimehuin, Alumine, Catan Lil, Collon Cura, and Malleo rivers. And so far guests have been blessed with both quantity and quality fishing—including a 27-inch rainbow recently landed on the lower Chimehuin.
January was hotter than average and February got off to a tumultuous start, with storms and rain. The not-so-nice weather, however, proved to be a bonus, cooling the water, increasing trout activity, and providing nice browns on the upper Chimehuin, near the lodge.
