Went to check out our water in Colorado and the flows are great right now.


Had a slow start on the El Poso due to cold water, but the fishing picked up later in the day. Bruce and I managed to catch some wild browns and cutbows in the 16" range. Should be better when the weather warms up.


Fished Jaroso Creek on the Cielo Vista Ranch with my buddy, Bruce. We had a great day catching beautiful pure bred Rio Grande cutthroats.


The fishing on the Red was excellent. Was using a dry dropper rig. Caught most of them on a pheasant tail bead head nymph.

Type your paragraph here.


Went to check out the Culebra today and it was a bit murky. I did catch one 16" brown on a wooley booger.


The Culebra still has a lot of water, but it is fishing great with nymphs and a strike indicator. Caught some beautiful, wild browns in the pools.


The upper Costilla is looking great. Saw some stone flies out and caught some on a Latir Lowrider.               


The lower Costilla is fishing very good midmorning on bead head pheasant tail droppers, and mid afternoon there is an epic black ant hatch going on. They will hit any black ant patterns and parachute adams.

We are starting to get some runoff on the Red and the Costilla. The private water we have in Colorado is looking good and fishing great. It should be good there for another month or so before it starts running off too.


The lower Costilla is fishing excellent. I went out the other day on our stretch of the river and caught some beautiful cutthroats and cutbows. They ranged between 14-18" I caught them on a size 14 pheasant tail bead head dropper.

We  are now booking package deals on the Cielo Vista Ranch. Check package deals page.


Just got back from the Costilla and it fished good with dries.


The lower Costilla has been fishing the best it has in the last 8 years. Catching them on dries and droppers.


Fished the San Francisco Creek on the Cielo Vista Ranch today and it was on fire. My buddy, Bruce, and I released over 75 wild browns in less than 3 hours. We caught them all on dries.


My friend from St. Louis, Mo came to see me and we went fishing on San Francisco Creek today. It was very good. We caught them on hopper patterns. We also heard the Rio Costilla is fishing excellent. 


Amy had an excellent day on our stretch of the Costilla. She released a beautiful 18" cutbow as the biggest.
