Costilla Creek Fishing Lodge And Guide Service Fly Fishing in Northern New Mexico And Southern Colorado

        9/9 and 9/10/017

Guided Amy on the El Poso and the Trujillo piece on the Costilla and the fishing was fantastic. She caught brookies, browns and cutthroats.


Robbie and Jayden had a great time on the beautiful Vallejos.

The really big cutbow broke Amy's dropper off again but she managed to land an 18" rainbow on the Costilla.


Brandon from PA, a talented bamboo rod maker who was here for the fiberglass clave, caught a big male Rio Grande cutthroat over 20" on our stretch of the Costilla at the lodge.

 Beginning in 2012, Aurelio is starting his own guide business. He will guide on Forest Service land, BLM land and private free stone streams for native and wild fish.
There will be a $50 discount on guide fees for those who lodge with us at Costilla Creek Fishing Lodge and Guide Service

The season for 2019 is looking fantastic for the Commanche, Ponil, the Costilla and our private water on the Vallejos due to the excessive snow in the mountains. According to the State Biologist, the fish kills on the Costilla will begin in late October above the barrier in the Valle Vidal.

The Costillla is looking great up above on the RCCLA and should be fishing good real soon. Saw some beautiful Rocky Mountain sheep.

Don had a great time on the  Culebra.

Thank you, Van.

Guided Amy on Trujillo's and because of the low water, the fishing was tough, but she managed to pick up over 20 fish.

Jack and Alec had a fun day on the Vallejos.


The Red River at the the hatchery and down to the confluence of the Rio Grande is fishing excellent. The Hondo is fishing good by the John Dunne Bridge.


I fished the lower Red today and it was fishing good. They were hitting on caddis droppers and quite a few hit the elk hair caddis. The lower Costilla in Amalia should start fishing good in another week. Still some ice on the edges.
