Jim had an excellent day on the Trujillo section on the Costilla.


Amy had an excellent day catching beautiful cutbows and cutthroats . Released over 50 fish and had one on over 20" that busted her 4X tippit.


Jon had a great day on the Vallejos until we got rained out.


Had another epic day on the lower Costilla by the lodge Caught a lot of cutbows and cutthroats on a dry dropper combination. While I was fishing, I heard a couple of grunts behind me and caught this shot of a cow elk on the hill. It is a little hard to see.


Took Jon out again on the beautiful Vallejos after the rain delay and he hit out of the park. He released over 50 wild browns,

Jack and Alec had a fun day on the Vallejos.


Fished the Trujillo piece that we have with my son, Phillip. Caught some nice cutbows and cutthroats in the 14-15" range, He lost a 20"+cutbow. As of today, the Carson Forest (which includes the Valle Vidal)and the RCCLA are closed as a precautionary measure.  If you book at the lodge our stretch is fishing very good right now. If you want Aurelio to guide you, the Trujillo piece is fishing even better.

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


Fished our stretch here by the lodge. Released 26 fish and missed over 50. This is the best it has fished in years. At 30cfs, the flows are perfect. Saw a lot of stone flies and black ants.


Went to check out the upper Costilla today and released 10 fish. Caught them on a small caddis and a size 14 Latir Low Rider. Saw some stones and ginger duns. Ran into Jeremy who operates the dam and he said they have slowed it way down because of the alfalfa cutting, so the water on the lower Costilla at the lodge and Trujillos should fish excellent for big cutbows and cutthroats.


Had another excellent day fishing by the lodge with some beautiful big cutbows and a lot of cutthroat. We take great pride in putting our clients on wild and native fish in the area. We do not do any STOCKING what so ever because we want you to experience what trout fishing is all about. Amy, see you soon and Rick, you should have a blast in several weeks.
