ImageA few weeks later towards the end of November, the big Cutbows and larger Rainbows begin the same beautiful dance all over again, lasting on into early spring completing a large trout trifecta that’s available October through April.

Of course, we strongly urge the resistance of pressuring fish actively on spawning redds, asking that you concentrate instead on migrating fish and the strong population of resident Browns and stocked Rainbows often found below the redds.


Featuring a fantastic and well rounded aquatic insect population, the Red River offers the full gamut of fly fishing with opportunities to nymph – droppers (a nymph attached to a dry fly) are the rig of choice to run a nymph, streamers are a killer in fall and winter and excellent dry fly and emerger fishing can be had at various times throughout the year.

The river is accessible at the Red River fish hatchery and from the Wild and Scenic Rivers area on the La Junta and Aguaje trails. La Junta will take you to the confluence with the Rio Grande with Aguaje dropping you in about a mile and a half or so above the confluence. From September through April please feel free to give us a call for an up to the minute fishing report and water conditions or of course, to book a trip.
