The streamflows in the Rio Grande are at a good level for all types of fishing right now. If you’d like to avoid the crowded conditions on the river between Taos Junction Bridge and Velarde, try hiking into the Rio Grande Gorge near Questa. It’s a bit of a hike, but don’t be intimidated. It looks like a long way down, but once you get going and pace yourself, even a 70-year old like me can do it. Be sure to bring some water with you and watch for rattlesnakes. Personally, I find the fishing best above the Red River.
