The Rio Grande is running at near or slightly above normal levels. The fishing has been good. I really want to check out the upper Rio Grande above where the Red River comes in. It’s best to check it out to see how clear the water is. One of the drawbacks to the summer rainstorms is they can muddy the water. It’s a long hike down to the river from the rim of the Rio Grande Gorge. You don’t want to make that long hike down to the river and find it muddy.
