Fished the afternoon, sunny and warm. Water was brown and clear on the edges, but still caught fish very close along the banks from parking area upstream. Size 12 Amy's Ant and olive Parachute hopper on top with BH prince or pheasant tail dropper - all caught fish with 15 inch rainbow the biggest. Wind picked up late and went to streamer - black slump buster and caught 3 more rainbows. ~ Bruce Kautz -- August 18th, 2012


The creek was about the right level, but the water was a bit murky. The fish held even tighter to the banks than usual, so I had trouble fishing nymphs. I caught a couple on pheasanttails and a couple more on pale morning dun dries when there was a light hatch. I took far more fish on small wooly buggers with rubber legs. I slapped the streamers right next to the bank and caught a total of about 15 fish, 8 to 16 inches long. There was one rainbow, one cutthroat, and the rest were browns. ~ John -- June 13th, 2012


The creekis running 35-40 cfs, just right for fly fishing. I caught about 20 fish on Friday, 10-15 fish on Saturday. All were browns except for 2 cutthroats (on dries) and 3 rainbows (on streamers). One bow was 17 inches, biggest fish of the trip. There weren't many risers showing, but the fish readily took elkhair caddis and hoppers if fished close to the bank. They also took small wooly bugger streamers, and sometimes small prince and hare's ear nymphs. It was hot and the fish stopped hitting about 3pm, until it got dark at 8pm. Mosquitoes were bad below the campsite, but absent above the campsite because that stretch has not been irrigated. ~ John -- July 25th, 2011


I didn’t get skunked! I was on my way down to the Rio Grande for some floating and I’ve been wanting to check out this property for awhile. Conditions seemed pretty good. Just over 100 cfs, but very fishable. Visability was maybe a foot, could have been better but, I didn’t get the impression this stream is ever gin clear with the cattle and horses. Started fishing in the middle of the property about 1 PM and conditions looked great for streamer fishing. So I hit it hard for a few hours downstream.......nothing. Decided to nymph some back upstream....nothing. Tossed streamers again til 5 PM and picked up a couple 12” browns. Time of day and water clarity were probably the biggest factors. A couple of days later could have made a big difference. Great looking property just have to time it right with the flows. ~ Rob -- June 19th, 2011


Really beautiful ranch and teaming with wildlife. A wild turkey was calling and too many bluebirds to count. Had a late snow storm blow through today which made things tough. Didn't catch any fish but my buddy had one definite strike that he missed (may fly nymph in a size 18). We did see one small 6" fish but it looks like the area is routinely grazed and the creek shows it. Had a great lunch at the bakery/cafe in Sauquache ... closes as 2PM and worth the 15-minute drive to town for sure. Great destination for the scenery and wildlife but pretty weak on fish. Better luck to the nexy guy! ~ Ranger Ken -- May 2nd, 2011
