  1. Default Book recommendation for Colorado & New Mexico

    Please recommend books on fly fishing Colorado and New Mexico; a plus would be access points. Since my son moved to Denver, I can see lots of visits and fishing.

    Flyfisher's Guide to Colorado by Marty Bartholemew is a good place to start.

    There is a "Flyfisher's Guide to New Mexico" as well. Taylor Streit's "Guide to Fly Fishing in New Mexico" is short and sweet. "Fly Fishing in Northern NM", edited by Craig Martin, is older but still good. There's also "Fly Fishing Southern Colorado", by Martin, Knopick and Flick.

    When you say "access points", what are you looking for?

    Thanks guys for the info.

    I'm seeking public fishing access points, don't want to venture into private property. Tips on good places to catch "stupid" fish would be great too; as I'm a relative newby at fly fishing.

    Colorado's Best Fly Fishing by Landon Mayer is my new favorite, doesn't really cover detailed access points as much as some, but does a pretty good job I'd say. What area(s) of CO are you going to fish first?

    +1. It's got hatch charts and maps of pullout points for many of the major rivers in CO. Definitely a good book when you aren't sure what(or what size) you should be throwing.

    This book is from wilderness adventures press inc, belgrade montana. It doesn't tell you how to fish. It's all maps with detailed notes on each with all the info you need on what fish are there, regs, put in, take outs, public and private lands, access points, mileage , etc. It also shows where giant stoneflies come out of the water onto land looking for unsuspecting anglers, lol. Very useful for rafting, too.

    I'll be making sort of a whirlwind tour this summer: Cimarron SP near Taos, Conejos River near Mogote, Silverton-Ridgeway, RMNP-Camp Dick. I'll be out there the first 3 weeks of July.
