Having retired to New Mexico in 2016, it’s ironic I haven’t fished it’s waters all that much. Usually, we load up our trailer in April and don’t see home til October or later. But Covid has us grounded. Good thing because I’ve been exploring.

Within 90 minutes of the casa, I’ve found several worthy blue line waters, all with trout that will put the bend on my 1-3wt collection of rods. As a side benefit, the waters are beautiful and I often find myself missing takes from taking it all in.

Best of all, with the kid out of the army and living locally, I’m reunited with my favorite fishing pal (pictured below). Anyway, thanks to Covid, I’m figuring out that I’ve got some nice places to scratch the itch.

**BTW, don’t know why pictures are repeating. Doing this stuff on a cell phone is a mutha..**

Creeking is the best! Looks like a blast in a beautiful place.

That is some nice looking fishing water. It's always nice to fish with our sons.

It’s funny you say that because it completely reminds me of DC, except the rocks are red and it’s Mr. Brown’s territory. We lived all of 10 minutes from the house to Splinter’s Cabin and I was on a first name basis with damn near every trout there. Some of my best moments were below Devil’s Hole and it was a classroom for blue lining that still benefits me all these years later.

And thank you all for the kind comments. Door’s always open if you get out this way.

Absolutely gorgeous! I’ve been through a bit of New Mexico, but I had no idea that existed there. Just curious, what part of New Mexico are you living in? If I had to guess, I’d say close to Santa Fe.

I’ll have to shoot north the next time I drive through. Seems I’ve missed a few things

In the 2nd pic, is that a heavily spotted rainbow?

Colors in the final pic are fantastic.

It is. Seen some amazing varietals here.

Nice!
New Mexico is amazing and their breweries are unreal!!
The brew scene is one of the reasons we settled in here. Pretty outstanding options.
