Back from Valle vidal, New Mexico

Got back Sunday PM. Excellent trip! Weather was fantastic, no wind, temps in mid 70's in day, down to 40's at night. Bear visited camp two nights in a row making sleeping a bit difficult. The fishing was good, not spectacular. It was dry up there, Shuree pond was 10 ft low and weedy. You could wade through the weeds and reach the deeper water. There were 8 tubers on pond at one time. We were all cathing fish. There are no small fish in Shuree. I caught a 20" on a #6 double bead head Golden stone. Large hook for large fish, I guess!
Rio Costilla was running a bit low, but fished well. Caught around 12 each of 3 days. Best dry fly was green elk hair caddis #12-16. Also used #12 damsel nymph and #16 Barr's emerger.

  1. Riparian Barbarian

    Don't know if I can do this or not, but here goes. My son lives in Rawlins, Wy and fishes the North Platte every chance he gets. He starts at the Duggway north of Sinclair and goes up to Alcova. He loves Fremont canyon! He's not an expert but he is learning rapidly. He started the "Riparian Barbarian" a month ago so any of you Wyoming fishermen or any others might want to look at his spot. I go to Google and type in Riparian Barbarian. A lot of pics and comments. Enjoy, he'd love hearing ...
