Taos New Mexico Fly Fishing Guide

June 19, 2019

FLOWS CONTINUE HIGHER THAN PREVIOUS FEW YEARS AND MORE LIKE THE "GOOD OLD DAYS" OF THE '80's. THIS BODES WELL FOR THE SUMMER SEASON WITH PLENTY OF WATER. FLOWS ARE DROPPING SLOWLY AND CONDITIONS SHOULD IMPROVE ON MOST AREA STREAMS FOR THE REST OF THE MONTH. 


 


CIMARRON: 2CFS FROM THE DAM AND 29CFS IN THE COLIN NESBIT. THE STONES ARE OUT AND ABOUT AND A STIMMIE IS ALL YOU NEED FOR UNMOLESTED FISH. TRY A DROPPER IN THE DEEPER RUNS: PT OR CADDIS LARVA


COSTILLA: 35CF FROM THE DAM AND 96CFS IN AMALIA. THE FLOW IN THE RCCLA IS ABOUT 60CFS AND VERY CLEAR AND FISHABLE. STONEFLIES ARE STARTING TO APPEAR IN THE PM AND FISH ARE INTERESTED. DROPPERS MAY BE NEEDE IN THE MORNINGS BUT AS THE WATER WARMS THE FISH GET MORE ACTIVE. 


RIO GRANDE: 3420CFS IN CERRO AND 4280CFS IN PILAR. CALL CISCO AT LOS RIOS RIVER RUNNERS AND TAKE A RAFT TRIP


RED RIVER: 231CFS IN THE CANYON. TOO HIGH AND DIRTY STILL. IT WILL BE A WHILE FOR THIS TO SETTLE.


CULEBRA: 45CFS FROM THE DAM AND 78CFS IN TOWN. NICE FLOW AND DOWN FROM 100CFS EARLIER THIS WEEK WHEN WE HAD A GOOD DAY WITH STREAMERS AT THE HIGHER FLOW. THIS LOWER FLOW SHOULD BODE WELL FOR SOME SURFACE ACTION WITH SMALL [#12] STONES OR HOPPERS. A DROPPER ON A LONGER TIPPET [24"] SHOULD PRODUCE. LIKE THE COSTILLA, AFTERNOONS ARE BETTER.


EMBUDO: 379CFS  STILL TOO HIGH BUT THE SEASON HERE SHOULD BE LONGER AS SNOW SLOWLY MELTS OFF THE NORTH SIDE OF THE PECOS WILDERNESS. WHEN FLOWS GET BELOW 100CFS IT GETS MORE WADEABLE AND THERE ARE PLENTY OF STONES IN LATER JUNE AND THAT SHOULD BE EXTENDED INTO JULY.


CONEJOS: 59CFS FROM PLATORO AND 1690CFS IN MOGOTE. BACK IN THE DAY THE CONEJOS OFTEN DIDN'T FISH UNTIL JULY AND THAT IS THE CASE THIS YEAR WITH STILL RISING FLOWS FROM ABUNDANT SNOPAK. FISH ARE EATING BUT HARD TO ACCESS. THEY SHOULD BE HALE AND HARDY WHEN FLOWS RELENT IN JULY. 


CHAMA: ABIQUIU: 1770CFS MAYBE RIGHT BELOW THE DAM WITH NYMPHS, POUNDMEISTERS AND DOUBLE HACKLE PEACOCKS.
