AS OF SUNDAY JULY 6, 2008
Flows out of Eagle Nest Lake/Dam are about 60 cfs with flows down in the town of Cimarron at 66 cfs. This is a higher than normal flow for this time of year but still a very fishable flow. Water temps are good and water is slightly stained to a little murky. Fishing has been steady and good overall. Seeing some Trico's and starting to see some caddis. With this higher flow best fishing is with dry-n-dropper systems.
The Valle Vidal seciton is open. Flows out of Costilla Reservoir are about 75 cfs. This is a good fishable flow. Fishing during this first opening week has been really fun with dry fly action with hopper patterns.
Runoff. Won't look to fish below Questa until first of September.
Runoff. Don't look to fish the Rio until September.
At the February 2008 New Mexico Game and Fish Commision meeting the Game Commision voted against the proposed "multiple fly" regulation. Thanks to everyone that submitted their thoughts regarding this.
In late February of 2008 I hosted a saltwater trip to El Pescador Lodge in Belize. Everyone had a wonderful trip and landed a number of bonefish. 3 people landed their first Permit-Congratulations Dennis, Ken and Jerry. I hooked into 2 Permit but quickly lost them when I set with a trout hook set. Will definitely plan another trip to Belize.
The Valle Vidal Protection Act was signed by President George W. Bush on December 12, 2006. This act protects the treasured Valle Vidal from mineral developments and leasing including coalbed methane. Thanks to everyone that showed their support to help protect the beautiful Valle Vidal for future generations. -
