Weekly River Report

San Juan River

Pecos River

Tailwater below Navajo Dam flow

is 284cfs and very muddy do to low-elevation runoff. Fishing has unfortunately been very slow. If you decide to brave out the chocolate milk, large streamers in bright or dark contrasting colors are your best bet. 

The Pecos River is starting to see some early spring run off and is flowing at 67cfs at the confluence with the Mora, near Tererro. Fishing has been good for anglers using red egg patterns, San Juan worms and black wooly-buggers. Villanueva stretch is fishing very slow. 

Brazos River 

Conejos River 

The Brazos is coming back to life! This river is one of our favorites to fish. The Box and southward below Corkins Lodge is still covered by a thin shelf of ice but, with any hold in warm weather, the ice should melt rather quickly and the trout should be very hungry! Northeast of Tierra Amarilla, the Brazos is flowing at 21.5cfs. 

Ice cfs. Wait a few weeks. 

The section through the town of Chama is currently flowing at 31cfs and has thin ice shelves hugging the banks until mid-morning. Late morning fishing has been fair using dark leeches and wooly-buggers. Section below Abiquiu was 280cfs and fishing was decent for anglers using very light tippet using annelids, PT's and Hares Ears in the 16-20 size bracket.
