Other New Mexico Fly Fishing Waters
The streams covered under the waters are only the primary resources in our area. Other angling opportunities include:
A tributary of the Rio Grande below Taos. A difficult
stream to fly fish, but does hold some nice Browns. Fishes best spring and
Below Abiquiu Damn: Easy access. Fishes best spring and fall. Depends on Damn release. Best at 75 to 250cfs.
Below El Vado Damn: Also depends on damn release. Fishes best in flows below 300cfs.
Upper Chama: Good dry fly water, fishes best summer and fall.
Water temperature tends to get too high in summer so it fishes best in Spring (pre-runnoff) and fall. Very scenic
RIO SANTA BARBARA
Lots of angling pressure in summer. Fishes best in the fall.
Tributary of the Rio Grande. Eight miles north of Taos. Usually clears earlier than most other stream after spring run-off. Lots of Browns and an occasional cutbow. Fishes best spring and fall.
LA JARA CREEK
Remote stream in Southern Colorado. Loaded with Brown trout. Fishes best in summer. Not much pressure.
The upper reaches of the Alamosa river in Southern Colorado. The Alamosa
has been descimated in it's lower reaches by the now defunct gold mine at
Summitville. Above the mine Treasure Creak is truly a fly fishing "treasure." Hard
to get too, but well worth the effort. Best access from the Conejos drainage
and up over the pass. Some large Rio Grande Cutthroats here.
Medium sized man-made lakes, well stocked and managed. In the Angelfire-Blacklake area. Lots of big fish.
