Taos New Mexico Fly Fishing Guide

June 21, 2017

FLOWS ARE COMING DOWN SLOWLY AND MOST STREAMS WILL BE PRIME IN A FEW DAYS. THE HOT WEATHER [ IT WAS 98* AT MY HOUSE NORTH OF QUESTA ON 6/19] AND WATER TEMPS SOAR IN THE AFTERNOONS SO BEST FISHING IS IN THE MORNINGS AND EVES.


RED RIVER. 211CFS IN THE CANYON. NEEDS TO BE BELOW 100CFS BEFORE I VENTURE INTO THE CANYON.


RIO GRANDE: 1020CFS IN CERRO AND 1510CFS IN PILAR. SEPTEMBER SOON COME.


CIMARRON: 5CFS FROM THE DAM AND 17CFS IN UTE PARK. WATER TEMPS SOAR IN THE PM SO GET AN EARLY START. SOME STONEFLIES # 12 HAVE BEEN WORKING AND USE A PARA ADAMS FOR FUSSY FISH


COSTILLA: 42CFS FROM THE DAM AND 105CFS IN AMALIA. PROBABLY THE BEST BET RIGHT NOW. LOTS OF TOP WATER ACTION ON STONES AND SOME MAYFLY PATTERNS. IT SLOWS IN THE AFTERNOON WITH THE WARMER WATER AND THE PRESSURE AS IT THE ONLY EASY TRIP TO TAKE RIGHT NOW.


 


CULEBRA: 84CFS FROM THE DAM AND 129CFS FROM THE 2'S DOWN. GOOD STREAMER WATER. NYMPHING WITH SJ WORMS CAN ALSO PRODUCE.


 


CONEJOS: 560CFS FROM PLATORO AND 1510CFS IN MOGOTE. THESE ARE HIGH FLOWS AND WADING IS DIFFICULT. THERE ARE STONEFLIES ON THE LOWER RIVER AND SOME ACTION CAN BE HAD IN THE SHALLOWS WITH DRIES. WE FISHED THERE ON 6/15 AT A LOWER FLOW AND DID OK ON THE LOWER RIVER WITH STONEFLY NYMPHS. IT WAS ONLY 1000CFS ON THE FLY WATER.


 


CHAMA: ABIQUIU. 222CFS NOW WE ARE TALKING. GOOD FLOW SO WATER TEMPS SHOULD BE THE ISSUE. CRANE FLY LARVA # 6 OR A STREAMER WOULD BE MY CHOICE.
