We are looking to book a fishing trip in Pucon while we are there. Any recommendations? Mario's Fishing Zone looks good but the website isn't working so I can't tell if they still exist. Any help? Thanks!
We just went on a trip with Mario's guides Jan 19th, and I would highly recommend it. Mario himself doesn't guide much anymore (we're told), but we were taken out by a team of brothers who were very knowledgeable about the river and fishing in general, and spoke excellent English. Although I can't promise availability, we just walked in the day before and booked for the next day, and our another family booked for the following day just as we were leaving, so don't let the website hold you back. The service in the shop was excellent every time and the guides were terrific. And if you can speak even a little Spanish, Mario himself loves to talk fishing. Enjoy your trip!
Can you please tell me the name of the shop and where we can find it? Thanks so much!
The name is Mario's Fishing Zone, on Ave. O'Higgens, on the side going toward the lake. There are two fishing shops very near each other, but the windows in Mario's shop are much more full, and they sell locally made earrings as well, which are displayed in the windows. Outside the shop are some pictures of Mario with his fish, and I don't remember seeing people pictures outside the other. Hope that helps.
