Lake Strobel, internationally recognized for its monstrous trout, is located in the Santa Cruz region of Argentine Patagonia. It is a freshwater lake situated on the Chubut plateau, near the border with Chile. With an altitude of approximately 1,000 meters above sea level, the lake is set in a mountainous and picturesque environment.
Lake Strobel is found in a remote and isolated area, surrounded by vast stretches of Patagonian steppe and majestic mountains. The region is known for its pristine natural beauty and abundant wildlife. The lack of human development in the vicinity of the lake has contributed to its preservation and the preservation of its natural environment where trout have the perfect habitat for their Jurassic growth.

When it comes to fishing in Lake Strobel, Lake Olnie, or Salto Grande Dam, it's important to dress appropriately to be comfortable and protected during your fishing expedition. Here are some tips on what type of clothing to wear in this environment
- Layered clothing: Opt for dressing in layers, allowing you to adjust your attire according to changing
weather conditions. Start with a long-sleeved shirt or quick-drying shirt as a base layer, and then add a sweatshirt or fleece jacket as an intermediate layer. For the outer layer, choose a windbreaker or waterproof jacket to protect you from gusts of wind and possible rain.
- Durable pants: Select durable and comfortable pants that allow for free movement. Trekking pants or fishing pants made from water-resistant and quick-drying materials are ideal to protect you from splashes and provide comfort during long fishing days.
- Appropriate footwear: Wear waterproof shoes or boots with non-slip soles to tackle the wet conditions of the lake. Ensure they are comfortable and provide good support for walking on uneven terrain.
- Hat and sunglasses: Shield your face and eyes from the sun by wearing a cap with a visor to prevent glare and protect against UV rays. Additionally, use polarized sunglasses to enhance your vision and safeguard your eyes from water reflection.
- Gloves: Consider wearing lightweight yet sturdy gloves to protect your hands from cold, wind, and contact with fish and gear. Fingerless or convertible gloves will allow dexterity for handling fishing equipment without sacrificing protection.
- Remember that the weather in Lake Strobel can be unpredictable, so it’s important to be prepared for any eventualities. Adapting your clothing to the weather conditions will enable you to enjoy a more comfortable and pleasant fishing experience.
