  Beginning in 2012, Aurelio is starting his own guide business. He will guide on Forest Service land, BLM land and private streams. 

     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.

If you are fishing Southern Colorado, don't forget to stop by the Fox Creek Store for camping and fishing needs.

If you are in Taos, don't forget to stop at the Taos Fly Shop for your fishing needs

Had a great day with my buddy, Bruce, in Southern Colorado catching brookies and browns.

Fished San Francisco Creek yesterday and the dry fly action was excellent. Caught a lot of browns in the 8-10" range.
The lower Costilla is fishing good in the afternoon. Look for rises in the pools and use a size 22 mayfly pattern. Caught some cutbows in the 14-16" range.

With the warm nights, the lower Rio Costilla has been fishing very good. I was using size 14 Latir Lowrider with a size 14 caddis bead head dropper.

Fished the Costilla by us with my buddy, Bruce, today and the fishing was very good.

I fished the Red today and it was very good. Caught them on caddis bead head emergers. Also saw some fish rising and caught them on a size 22 Mayfly pattern gray. Caught a beautiful 15" cutbow.
The lower Costilla is still fishing good in the afternoons with a dry dropper.


Went down the Goat Trail and fished the Red. It was fantastic. Caught them on parachute adams and dry dropper rigs. A beautiful 17"cutbow was the largest.
The Costilla is starting to freeze and will not be ready until
after ice off sometime in March.

We will again be guiding on the ranch with an additional charge of $75 per rod.
The Rio Grande and the Red River are fishing good.
The lower Costilla should start fishing in early March.
The ice is starting to break up with a lot of open spots.

Happy Valentine's Day

This was the first day out on our stream. Still too much ice.
It will be another couple of weeks before it fishes good.
Caught 3 beautiful cuttbows on a hare's ear dropper.

Celebrating 80 years with the best fly fisherman in Northern New Mexico--Cecil Paddock.
The Red River is fishing pretty good. The Costilla is also fishing well. I made two trips on the Red in the last week and had good fishing.
The Red River is fishing good and our water in Southern Colorado is fishing good. I am catching them on bead head green caddis droppers. The lower Costilla at the present time is in run off.  The RCCLA is also fishing good.

It looks like the Red and the lower Costilla are running dirty during the day. The best bet would be to go on the upper Costilla on the RCCLA property.
With the cool nights, the lower Costilla is at a perfect flow--around 30cfs. Had an excellent day, even catching some on dries. Caught a few beautiful cutbows in the 13-15" range. Will check the upper section later on in the week.

The lower Costilla is fishing excellent right now. Caught these guys trespassing.
