After years of trying, I finally got a piece of the Conejos River! It’s a sweet piece of water, almost exactly a mile long, just enough for a full day of fishing. Less than one hour from the old blinking light (the intersection where you turn to go to the Taos Ski Valley or the Gorge Bridge) it’s easy to get to from Taos.
There are several enhanced structures, increasing the amount of good habitat and fishable water. It’s low enough in elevation that it fishes later and earlier in the year than further up in the canyon. It’s also above most of the irrigation so it doesn’t get too dewatered, except during a severe drought.
Like all the Conejos it has great hatches and while I haven’t fished it but twice, I’ve already seen golden stones, yellow Sally’s, PMD’s PED’s, tiny grey duns, western drakes and various caddis hatches. This is a real river with real hatches!
If you haven’t been fishing our waters lately, here’s what you’ve been missing!

This part of the river is just now becoming fishable due to a prolonged run-off so it should be perfect over the next few weeks, especially for dry fly fishing. So give us a call.
More New Water!!
On the Smith’s Fk. in Wyoming
I also just got over a mile of water on the Smith’s Fk. in addition to the several miles we already have access to. This piece is downstream a few miles and it has bigger cuts and browns and fishes well later in the year. It offers some great fall brown trout fishing and some very big browns have been caught in the lower Smith’s Fk. over the years!
