Colorado or New Mexico Half Day Trip PRIVATE WATER
Culebra Creek • Cimarron River • Holy Water • Conejos
The Culebra springs out of the bottom of Sanchez Reservoir, located in San Luis CO, about an hour’s drive north from Taos. Situated at the base of the 14,000 plus foot Culebra Peak, the creek offers both fantastic scenery and splendid fly fishing on a year-round basis. The river runs through lovely wide-open pastures and meadows. The fish, on average, are the largest in the Taos area, with fish 18″ and up not uncommon.
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.
