Taos New Mexico Fly Fishing Guide

May 16, 2017

THE PEAK RUNOFF IS IN PLAY EARLY THIS YEAR AND ALL AREA STREAMS ARE HIGH AND DIRTY. eXPECT SOME RELIEF ON THE TAILWATER STREAMS[ CIMARRON COSTILLA AND CULEBRA] BUT FOR THE REST IT WILL BE MID-JUNE BEFORE THE BEST FISHING OF THE YEAR STARTS.


RED RIVER. 321CFS. NEEDS TO BE BELOW 100CFS AND CLEAR. RIGHT NOW ITS ADOBE HUED.


RIO GRANDE: 1450CFS IN CERRO AND 2660CFS IN PILAR. DOWN A LITTLE IN THE PAST COUPLE OF DAYS BUT ITS GOT A WAYS TO GO.


CIMARRON: 1CFS FROM THE DAM AND 93CFS IN UTE PARK. A LITTLE HIGH BUT DROPPING AND CLEARING. IT WILL BE SJ WORMS FOR A BIT BUT THE STONEFLY HATCH IS ONLY A FEW WEEKS AWAY, MAYBE SOONER WITH EVERYTHING BEING EARLY THIS YEAR.


COSTILLA: 216CFS IN AMALIA. THIS FLOW IS TOO HIGH. WE FISHED IN AMALIA A WEEK AGO AND CAUGHT SOME NICE FISH BUT FEWER THAN EXPECTED AT 100CFS.


 


CULEBRA: 50CFS. WE FISHED HERE ON 5/16 AND AT THIS FLOW SOME FISH ARE MOVING OUT OF THEIR WINTER, LOW WATER LIES INTO SOME OF THE WATER THAT HASN'T PRODUCED SINCE LAST YEAR. CRANE FLY LARVA #6 AND SJ WORMS WORKED WELL AND AFTER THE WIND CAME UP STREAMERS PRODUCED AS WELL.


 


CONEJOS:407CFS FROM PATORO AND 1710CFS IN MOGOTE. WE FISHED HERE ON 5/3 AND CAUGHT A FEW NICE FISH ON THE FLY WATER BUT THAT WAS AT 350CFS IN MOGOTE. THE MEADOWS BELOW PLATORO WILL BE GOOD AS SOON AS THE RELEASE GETS DOWN TO ABOUT HALF OF ITS PRESENT FLOW [407CFS]


 


CHAMA: ABIQUIU. 921CFS. TOO HIGH


 


 


 


 


 


RIO GRANDE: 1420CFS IN CERRO AND 2180CFS IN PILAR. GOOD FLOW FOR RAFTING, FISHING, NOT SO GOOD.


CHAMA BELOW ABIQUIU. 1310CFS. TOO HIGH
