Spring Fishing Report

The Rio Grande is currently flowing at 562cfs, that is a 50% drop in one week and it is still falling. This has inspired good feeding activity and therefore good fishing.  The Blue Wing Olives are out and about but the real hatch is right around the corner. The annual spring Caddis hatch will start down south on the Race Course and will extend up to the canyon in the next couple of weeks. When you are on the water wait for the shade line to hit the river and look for the risers. Try dapping and skating Elk Hair Caddis dries across the surface. In addition, if the hatch is strong you can find good activity below the surface with Caddis nymphs. Stop by the shop for specific go-to flies and for day-to-day updates on the current flows and Caddis activity.

If you are free the evening of Tuesday, April 12th join us for a Simms boot demo at the Rio Bravo Campground pavilion on the banks of the Rio Grande. Our local rep will be there with size runs of four different boot styles for you to test drive. Figure out which boots work best for you and take advantage of the spring hatch by arriving early and getting time on the water! The event takes place from 4-7. Please bring your own waders.

  1. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Rio Costilla creek with Chris the week of Aug 8. Chris was patient & we learned a lot. He took away the 'mystery' of fly fishing. Serves a great lunch. He is not nearly as repulsive as James led us to believe ;-)) Beautiful area, beautiful creek. We know what a cutthroat looks like. Emily has a dazzling smile. Thanks for steering us & getting us in good gear. This was a 'first' for us, but not the last. We will be back in Nov-Dec. Thanks a bunch! Bob & Josh Hall.
