As always, best property within RMAC--my opinion. Beautiful county and excellant river and fishing. My dad used to take me to the Conejos when I was a kid and always have loved this place. Fishing excellant with Caddis hatch in the morning with big rainbows on the surface. Landed lots of fish with prize 22" Cutbow. Size 18 Caddis did the trick. All fish were between 15 and 22 inches. Afternoon turned cloudy with heavy thunder storms and had nice afternoon stripping a Pat's Rubber Legs. Perfect day. ~ Russ -- July 7th, 2013


Fishing was good and the weather was warm and sunny. The river was at moderate level, and the water was clear. I caught some big fish early in the morning on wooly bugger streamers, but I couldn't get big nymphs to work at any hour. I switched to dries and caught fish on stoneflies, caddis, and emerger droppers. I used a midge pattern in the calm backwaters. There were no big hatches, but bugs (including maybe some green drakes) were fluttering around most of the day. The fish ranged from 10 to 20 inches. On the downstream half of the property they were mostly rainbows, probably stocked at some point, but I found a bunch of feisty wild browns near the upstream boundary. No cutthroats this year, though. ~ John -- June 19th, 2013


Water was clear and had come up after recent rains. Only fished until 1 p.m. but great fishing with 20 plus fish to net which included 2 really big rainbows and 1 very large brown. The fish were deeper and a Zebra Midge with a small-bodied, red San Juan Worm were best. Took fish on both. Water temperatues were in the 40s. This was fishing that bordered on exceptional. ~ Brad -- September 13th, 2012


Warmsunny day, but gusty at times. No luck with nymphs, but hitting on hoppers from 11:00 to 4:00 (parachute hopper and Joe's Hoppper). Fish were in the fast water. In the evening, when the wind died, good luck with size14 parachute blue winged olives, which were out and on the water. Fish were quietly feeding in the tail waters. As always on the Conejos, I had to work for my fish - Three Rainbows (one 19-inch) and 4 browns (up to 16-inch) caught and released. All fat and healthy. Great day. ~ Tim J -- August 15th, 2012


Two wonderful days on the Conejos. Wednesday had light morning hatches and picked up a few nice fish on Adams and Green Drakes. The hatches subsided early so went down with Black and Black/Tan Pat's Rubber Legs fishing like a streamer and caught 20 to 30 fish in the 14 to 22" range--two browns and a Rainbow over three pounds. Most of the bows were broad/thick healthy fish. Thursday the morning hatch was prolific and caught most fish on a Green Drake with an Adams pulling up the rear. Winds came up heavy around ); INSERT INTO `wp_rmanglingpostmeta`(`post_id`, `meta_key`, `meta_value`) VALUES (1230pm and forced to go deep again with Pat's Rubber Legs. Tried other nymphs: Golden Ribbed Hairs Ear, Prince, Pheasant Tails and Copper Johns but nothing worked as well as the Pat's Rubber Legs. Did not see any Stoneflys or Caddis; some BWO and PMD seen but in very small numbers. My father used to take me on the Conejos when I was quit small and I loved it then with my five foot fly rod and things haven't changed much since--still a wonderful beautiful place to spend time on a great trout stream. ~ Russ -- June 24th, 2012
