flows out of Eagle Nest Lake and is an irrigation impoundment like the Costilla.
here are "on demand" so there is no predicting what the flow will be on any
given day. Best flows are betwween 15 and 50cfs. Some of the water in Eagle
Nest Lake is also owned by the downstream towns of Springer and Raton which
uses the water to supplement their domestic water supply. The Cimarron River
is a roadside stream with easy access but unlike the Rio Costilla is very
brushy. The fish here are mainly Brown trout to 16" and
stocked Rainbows. This stream also gets a lot of fishing presure and isn't
recommended on weekends.
