Fly Fishing in Northern New Mexico And Southern Colorado

Fished the upper Costilla yesterday and the dry fly fishing was pretty good. Caught them on a 16 elk hair caddis, yellow sallies and some very small dark bodied caddis were flying about. 

Fished the Costilla today and it was a little better. Dry dropper rigs and droppers with indicators seem to be working the best, but at least it is starting to fish.

Guided on the Costilla today and the fishing was terrible.
The Cimarron is still fishing well.

The Costilla is fishing good. I caught them all on droppers. Bead head pheasant tails and bead head PMDs emergers.

Amy had a good day on the Culebra. She caught some and missed some.

The Costilla is fishing really slow, Your best bet is the Cimarron. The Culebra is fishing good.

The Vallejos is looking great and starts fishing in the late morning. I caught my first fish this year, a nice 12″ brown. He came out from¬† an undercut. The Costilla is still running too fast. Your best be would be the Cimarron.

The Costillla is looking great up above on the RCCLA and should be fishing good real soon. Saw some beautiful Rocky Mountain sheep.

The Red River at the the hatchery and down to the confluence of the Rio Grande is fishing excellent. The Hondo is fishing good by the John Dunne Bridge.

I fished the lower Red today and it was fishing good. They were hitting on caddis droppers and quite a few hit the elk hair caddis. The lower Costilla in Amalia should start fishing good in another week. Still some ice on the edges.

… and a few of our oldies but goodies…

Don had a great time on the Culebra.
Thank you, Van.

Guided Amy on Trujillo’s and because of the low water, the fishing was tough, but she managed to pick up over 20 fish.

Ken, Jay and Ben fished our stretch by the lodge in the afternoon. They released 20 fish and Ben released a 17″ cutbow.The really big cutbow broke Amy’s dropper off again but she managed to land an 18″ rainbow on the Costilla.
