Fellow guide, Steve Morris, had a fun day on San Francisco creek.


The Costilla is beginning to run off.



Went to check out some private water on the Culebra tail water near San Luis, CO. My buddy Manuel and I had a great day.


Had a great day on the upper half of the Vallejos catching browns. The lower half has been overtaken by beavers who have built 3 new dams. Hopefully the run off will break them.

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


Went up to check up on the ranch.  The Culebra was in great prerunoff condition and fishing great. The San Francisco was a little fast but fishing very good. The browns were hitting dry flies. The run off has started on the El Poso, so it will not be fishable for a while.


I caught some beautiful cutbows on our property today stripping a girdle bug.


Fished the lower Red this week and it was a little off color and tough. I did manage to pick up some browns on a Caddis dropper. I fished the Costilla at the lodge today and it was also a little off color and tough. I did manage to pick up a couple of cutbows in the 14-18" range on a San Juan worm.
