San Carlos River Icon for San Carlos River

A slow flowing river with some pools; fishing on the estuary can also be good throughout the main season. The San Carlos River rises between the Wickham Heights and White Mountain, flowing north-west, then northwards and finally westwards to Falkland Sound.

There are several well-known pools but it can be difficult for inexperienced fishers to choose the best places for fish. Kingsford Valley Farm will provide advice, drop-off/pick-up and have some basic equipment for hire.

Access: land is privately owned - check with accommodation providers or the Falkland Islands Tourist Board for details.
Accommodation: San Carlos (Kingsford Valley Farm), Port San Carlos, Stanley.
