Private access to Quillen River
Quillen is a moderate to small sized river, with beautiful structure.
Weed beds flats, riffles, cut banks with deep pools provide a variety of water that combined with easy wading (mostly sand bottoms) makes it just perfect. Anglers can expect 1 to 3 pounds rainbows and browns (plus the chance to land trophy browns that migrate in the river system usually during fall).
This private and quick access to the Chimehuin using interanl roads, offers the opportunity to fish a nice morning session, come back to the lodge for lunch and relax for a while. Dicuss what section to fish in the afternoon!
The Chimehun river is well known for its good and dense hatches, so depending the time of the year you are visiting us, you might have morning and evenings hatches. Great dry fly fishing!

Fishing the Collon Cura River
The Lodge has unique access to wade fish the area around the confluence of the Chimehuin and the Collon Cura Rivers. If you are not staying at the lodge the only way to get there is drifting, so we normally fish that strech in th mornings, before any other anglers could reach that water.
We personally like the idea of using 3 Rios Lodge as a frist stop before we move into Collon Cura or Quemquemtreu lodges, located downstream from 3 rios property. This works fantatsic, since you will be moving from one lodge to the other basically fishing... We will move the luggage for you!
That stretch of the Collon Cura River offers different types of waters and a world of side channels and lagoons. This will vary depending on the time of the year your trip is scheduled.
