Rio Cimarron is a nice tailwater fishery with a lot of Brown Trout. The stream is located in northern New Mexico in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.
This trip the fishing conditions were rough. The water was flowing at 15 cFS and super clear. The fish were wary because of the clarity of the water and would spook at 25 feet. The morning I fished it, the fishing was slow; several fish were caught amoung three of us with the largest at 16 inches long. I nymphed and my fishing buddies used a dry and a dropper.
Here is Rod B. of Amarillo, TX with the first trout of the day.
