FISHING REPORT by fishing guide, Aurelio Corso, on the streams of northern New Mexico and southern Colorado
Beginning in 2012, Aurelio is starting his own guide business. He will guide on Forest Service land, BLM land and private free stone streams for native and wild fish.
There will be a $50 discount on guide fees for those who lodge with us.
For guiding on the Conejos, we highly recommend Spencer Seims of Zia Fly
Thanks to Grant, we will have some great water to guide on for a $75 rod fee in southern Colorado.
Taos Fly Shop
When you visit the area, do not forget to stop here for your fishing supplies and information. The shop has a great staff and family atmosphere that you can't get anywhere else. They even carry a fine line of fiberglass rods in the ECHO brand. The 6' 9" 3 WT. is perfect for the Costilla and other small streams in the area.
John and John had a great day on the El Poso.
Madeline and John having a great day on the Culebra.
I helped Steve Morris with a guide job on the Costilla yesterday afternoon. The 3 gentlemen I guided released close to 40 fish. Most of the fish were caught on a size 16 Parachute Adams.
Had another beautiful day on the upper Culebra. Paula released a beautiful 16" male cutbow with a hooked jaw. Every thing was caught today using a Latir Low Rider dry fly size 14.
Got to fish the Ponil this year after five years of it having no water. It was fantastic. We released close to 50 beautiful cutthroats. If anyone wants me to guide them on these waters, they need to be in pretty good shape and I will only guide one at a time.
Went up on the Costilla this afternoon, Had a lot refusals on caddis and stimulators. Started catching them on a size 22 parachute---the Gene Turner fly.
Had a great day on the El Poso after a slow start.
We released over 35 wild browns that went between 10-14". It was a real pleasure to fish this beautiful free stone stream in its natural state to where there is no stream restoration work that looks like a water theme park.
Had an epic day on the Culebra. Amy released close to 25 fish with a 17" brown and a 18" cutbow.
Maggie having fun at the pool on the Culebra.
Got a report from Spencer who had an epic day. His two clients released over 40 fish with a 22" brown. South Vallejos and Vallejos and the El Poso
All still have too much water. These streams should be excellent for dry fly fishing only in a couple weeks.
