The Fuy is an amazing river with lots to offer. Whether you are just learning to kayak or you are in Chile to go fishing. The Fuy flows from lake Pirehueico with vibrant turquoise colors into lake Panguipulli. (Kurt Casey 2009). The first descent of the Fuy occurred in 1981 when Newsome Holmes, Royal Robbins, and Doug Tompikns ran the upper and lower sections.(Casey 11/11/2013). Currently ENDESA is trying to put a hydroelectric power plant on the Fuy. If this happens it will destroy the whitewater section of the Fuy.
