WILDERNESS ADVENTURE PRESS MAPS: NEW MEXICO RED RIVER The Red River is a major tributary to the Rio Grande, and is recovering nicely from years of pollution by the Molycorp molybdenum open pit mine. It fishes well for wild browns, cuttbows, rainbows and brooks.Above the town of Red River, eager 8- to 12-inch trout will be the norm. They will pounce on attractor dries without too much effort from the angler. This stretch is heavily stocked some of the stockers being quite large.Between Red River and Questa, the fishing starts to suffer from the pollution. The bit between the mine and Red River is about the same as the upper section, but from the mine down to Questa is basically dead water. You might try Cabresto Creek and Lake if youre in this area.From Questa to the Rio Grande, the Red River changes character thanks to a spring-heavy canyon. These springs help clean the dirty water and give the river a more spring-creek-like character. There is a high number of smallish fish here, but there are also big run-up browns and cuttbows from the Grande. This section fishes excellent year round.All told, the Red River is a sweet little creek that hosts satisfying fishing.There are numerous special regulations, so be sure to check the regs before fishing. Lost, Horseshoe and Middle Fork LakesThese lakes host big Rio Grande cutthroat trout most ranging from 15 to 18 inches. These natives cruise the shallows and will eat a well-presented midge pupa, snail, scud or Woolly Bugger.Middle Fork is more suitable for a float tube as most of the shore is treed. Dont be afraid to try an ant or beetle at any time. ISBN: 0-WAP-41002-2 publish date: 06/30/2011
