Thread: Cimmaron River in northeastern New Mexico ?

  1. #1

    Default Cimmaron River in northeastern New Mexico ?

    I've read there's good public access along state HW 64 in the Cimmaron Park area ? From what I've read this is a very small stream but there's good
    Brown population, though fishing pressure is heavy ? Spring fishing (April into early May) before snowmelt is usually good from what I've read ?
    Anybody got some experience on this stream ?

    Yes, I've fished the Cimarron every summer for the last 10-12 yrs. It's right along HW64 so easy access means you do have to put up with the crowds. I usually fish the Palisades area to start with, then move to Blackjack. It is a small, very brushy stream so short rods are best. I use 6.5-8ft, 3 and 4wts. I usually fish in mid September when a lot of the crowd thins out. There's a little store(Pine Ridge) in Ute Park where you can get your license and some flies. He can hook you up with Doc Thompson if you want a guide. There's a charge to stop in the parking areas, not much, but a nuisance. May want to stop in at Gravel Pit lake, down the road from Palisades. Good Luck! Glen

    Great info Cimarron, that should be very useful. Thanks a lot I'm very grateful.
    I'm going in a couple weeks, probably not the best time of the year to go fishing there but I'm trying to fit it in with a visit to the wife's family in Albuquerque.
