Part II of my recent trip to New Mexico was spent camping in Rio Costilla as part of a mission to connect with a Rio Grande Cutthroat. Along with completing that goal, I had the opportunity to meet some incredible people, take in some remarkable scenery and see mountain lion tracks not far from our camp. While we caught fish on PMDs, hoppers and other patterns, most fish came on flies that imitated Spruce Moths cast close to the stream banks. I’m always amazed by the variety of trout species we find across the country, and these trout of the Rio Grande drainage are remarkably beautiful! Today’s pic is Comanche Point where the waters of Commanche Creek and the Rio Costilla join. More pics on my social media profiles. Till next time ….
