Taos New Mexico Fly Fishing Guide

March 20, 2017

MARCH IS THE NEW APRIL. WARM TEMPS HAVE STARTED SOME EARLY RUNOFF AND MOST AREA STREAMS ARE HIGHER THAN USUAL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR.


RED RIVER: 63CFS BELOW THE HATCHERY. LOTS OF BUGS AND ANGLERS AS SPRING BREAKERS ARE IN TOWN. BIGGER WATER WILL GET SOME NICER FISH OUT FROM UNDER THE ROCKS. THE USUAL CADDIS PATTERN AND BWO's SHOULD STILL WORK BUT HAVE SOME SJ WORMS AND STREAMERS IF THE WATER MUCKS UP.


 


 


 


 


RIO GRANDE: 940CFS IN CERRO AND 1250CFS IN PILAR. GOOD FLOW FOR RAFTING, FISHING, NOT SO GOOD.


CHAMA BELOW ABIQUIU. 1310CFS. TOO HIGH


 


COSTILLA:  TOO EARLY


CULEBRA: 20-40CFS. NO RELEASE FROM THE DAM SO ITS ALL RUNNING OFF THE MOUNTAIN. WE HAD A FAIR DAY ON 2/25 FISHING A D&D RIG WITH A SOFT HACKLE PEACOCK NYMPH AS THE DROPPER AND TOOK 4 BROWNS BETWEEN 14 AND 21" IN 3 HOURS. NICE DAY, NO BUGS BUT THE BWO's SHOULD BE SHOWING UP SOON. ON 3/4 WE FISHED ONE OF THE LOWER SECTIONS AND DID WELL ON STREAMERS AND NYMPHS.HAVE SOME SJ WORMS IN CASE THE WATER GETS DIRTY. A FEW STREAMERS NEVER HURT ALSO


EMBUDO; 40CFS. I HAVE BEEN DISAPPOINTED EVERY TIME I'VE FISHED IN THE CANYON BEFORE MAY.


 


 


 


CONEJOS: 360CFS IN MOGOTE.  STILL LOTS OF SNOW ABOVE HORCA BUT SOME OF THE FLY WATER ALONG HIWAY 17 IS FISHINF. STONEFLY NYMPHS AND STREAMERS.
