Jurassic Lake is also known as Lake Strobel. Rainbows here average ten pounds, some are over twenty. The new Lodge has exclusive access to more than ten miles of coastline of the world-famous Jurassic Lake. Over 27,000 acres of crystal clear waters, the Lake's unique conditions are the perfect habitat for the best wild rainbow trout fishing in the world.
The huge north shore offers an excellent combination of sheltered bays, small islands, and large rocky areas scattered along miles of shoreline are where giant rainbow trout are plentiful. These waters (and the lake's eastern bank) are perhaps the least known of Strobel Lake.
The ten-mile exclusive area has some really beautiful waters. There are big bays, areas with islands, deep waters, sandy beaches. Some places are becoming known as big fish places. Serrana Bay, a larger bay, is fishable during any condition, as it is extremely protected and great fishing. The new lodge is an 80-minute drive from the parent lodge—Estancia Laguna Verde.
