Default NM Pecos Wilderness

Bout done packin for my NM backpack elk hunt. Decided to pack a flyrod and try to catch some trout while there. I have extremely little knowledge of flyfishing. Anyone know what flies I might try for high elevation (11,000') lakes there? Thanks.

Default Re: NM Pecos Wilderness

Royal Wulff, Parachute Adams, or Humpy size 18. Tie three feet of 5X to the hook bend and tie on any size 22 midge pattern. Put some Xink on the 5X and midge so it will sink. That's my go to rig for any high lake in the West.
