However, the fishing was only so-so due to recent rains muddying up the creek pretty bad...or it could be that I'm just a novice.
Fished the Piedra with a guide in October of last year and it's beautiful, but definitely tough and technical fishing. The guide who's been there many times had trouble getting them to bite and they are smart. I hooked into two huge fish that ran me down the river to only break me off once under some boulders and the other into a log jam. With that said, I'd hike down there again in a heartbeat, especially with the leaves changing in the fall!
