About: - Northwest New Mexico., Quality Water (six-mile stretch below Navajo Dam). Freestone tailwaters, Year-round fisher, good any time, including the dead of winter.Rainbows and cutthroats average 13 to 20 inches with many over 20 inches. Expect to catch several in the two to five pound range. Browns get big, too, but aren't as plentiful. Ten-pound browns are pulled from the river every now and again. No-Kill Area, which as the name implies means that for this quarter mile catch-and-release only; for the first three and a half miles below the dam, fishing is limited to barbless flies and lures only with a strict possession limit. There are different regulations along the river so be sure to check the current rules in place. Other famous and productive areas on the river include the Upper Flats, Lower Flats, Cable Pool, Baetis Bend, Simon Point, and the always crowded Texas Hole. This is some of the best water anywhere in the Southwest , but it is also some of the most difficult. The trout have been caught many times and are extremely wary.
  • Rainbow Trout
  • Brown Trout
  • Cutthroat Trout
