Fly Fishing on the Rio Pueblo

Rio Pueblo

While on a recent trip to new Mexico, there was some time to practice one of my favorite survival skills,,,fishing. Although a recent snow had the streams running faster than normal, we managed to catch a few trout. Although they were only about 10 to 12 inches, a couple of these trout would make a decent meal for one person. These trout were caught with worms dug up by the cabin. The trout in this area seem to have a preference for worms.

Here are some pics of the trout that were caught while fly fishing the Rio Pueblo. We did some fly fishing in a place called La Punta Canyon but didn't have any luck catching any fish there.

It was lucky that there were fishing licenses sold by the ski resort which was only about 10 miles away from the area. This saved me from having to make a long trip down off the mountain into the nearest town. The state of New Mexico has some very reasonable rates on their fishing licenses also that won't break your wallet.

Always like to practice my survival skills!

Got trout?

Staying above the water line!

Thanks. Kind of hard to take a good picture while holding a fly rod...especially when the fish won't stay still!

These were some nice browns but they tend to be smaller due to their habitat (i.e., smaller streams).

Thanks anon.
