The Shuree Ponds are located on the Valle Vidal, a 100,000 acre
unit of the Carson National Forest in northern
NM east of Costilla. The ponds are open July 1 through December 31 and are stocked with 15-inch or larger rainbow trout. One
pond is reserved for anglers under 12. The daily bag is two 15-inch-or-longer
fish. These are ideal float tube waters. The streams are catch-and-release and
are good for cut-throat trout.
