Overview

Northern New Mexico is a year round fishery. We are surrounded by many rivers and lakes including the Rio Grande, Cimarron, Red River, Costilla, Chama and the San Juan. Most of the trout waters are located in the Southern Rocky Mountain Region known as the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Wheeler Peak is the tallest mountain of the Sangre de Cristo range and the only "Fourteener" in the State of New Mexico. It is home to the world famous Taos Ski Valley. The area around the top of the mountains is known as the Enchanted Circle and includes the towns of Taos, Red River, Questa, Eagle Nest and Angel Fire. In addition to fly fishing, the area is also a road cycling/mountain bike, hiking, skiing, hunting and wildlife viewing destination.

We also offer private waters in Southern Colorado's San Luis Valley. Miles of the Culebra Creek and four other streams. All are freestone fisheries full of Browns, Colorado Cutthroat and Rainbow trout; and a private & remote high alpine lake with many wild trout species. The ranch boast abundant wildlife and amazing scenery including four mountain peaks; three are over 13,000 elevation and one is over 14,000 elevation. It is the only privately owned "fourteener" in the state. Guided fly fishing is all inclusive and available on a day or multi-day basis. We have day trips and trips to remote camping and fishing areas of the ranch by mule and horseback. We can customize trips to fit individuals and large groups.
