Very nice. Love the area, stayed there in Taos several times. Always look forward to driving through Eagle Nest, Cimarron, Taos Canyon, etc. Would love to hunt in there someday.
Share lots of pics!

Awesome! I am jelly! I didn't get to go trout fishing last year and was just contemplating a late summer trip this summer.

Doc and Shane are good guys, you'll have a good time with them.

Remember to stop by Comanche Creek Brewing just north of Eagle Nest after you get off the water. It's a nice place to drink a beer and wraps up a day of fishing pretty well. We sat out back on the patio and watched the elk off in the distance.

Fishing the Cimarron is awesome!!! Very technical fishing. Take a shorter rod if you have one, not a bunch of casting room in some places.

If you get a chance, drive on over to Cimarron and eat at the old hotel. It has bullet holes in the ceiling from rowdy cowboys back in the day.

Mainly just driving around looking at
Different spots today. Confronted my fear of heights by driving to the bottom of the Rio Grande Gorge. Hill descent assist on the F150 is awesome. We are kind of like a fish out of water(when it comes to this kind of fishing(pun intended). It is beautiful up here. Guide trip (full day)to the Cimarron River tomorrow. Sunday is a half day trip on Eagle Nest Lake with Jeremy Jines. My goal is to catch a bigger pike than Burnadell.

Oh I hate them too. But the railing on the bridge was high enough it didnít freak me out.
You really would have hated the drive to the bottom.

When you look of the edge of the bridge it’s Erie thinking about all those who have decided to take the plunge off of it.

We had planned to float the Rio last week, but our guide said his sources said the river was turbid due to the runoff; maybe next year.

Visited Taos as a child and have vague memories of the area. As soon as i saw that bridge, I thought "I've pee'd off that!" Funny the things we remember.

Exhausted. Spent a full day on private waters on the Cimarron River in Ute Park. First time my brother and I have fly fished. Shane with Doc Thompsonís guide service was great. Landed
a few and hooked several. That fly fishing is a blast. Tomorrow we are going to check out Red River .

I just saw a trout swim by in one of those pics. Moving right on into the moving water. And never stopped. It musta been heading to a resting pool or feeding pool.

It has nice pocket water but better suited for dropping a fly into a small pool vs casting. I fished a lot of it at philmont scout ranch

Trout of any decent size in the cimarron? It looks like an eastern brookie stream. Thatís what I grew up on slinging flies under branches.

At philmont ranch it is the upper reaches that I fished and fairly small water. Only caught small browns, nothing of any size. Used to fish around waynesville,nc and those brookies were fun.
