Fishing on the Pecos River
If you love to fish, Northern New Mexico may be your dream vacation. The Pecos River is an excellent location for both fly fishing and regular cast fishing, offering incredible fishing options just a short drive from Santa Fe.
The Pecos River is known for its Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout and Rio Grande Cutthroats. The river has benefited from extensive restoration and rehabilitation to restore native trout, helping make the Pecos a great place to fish in almost any season.
From the headwaters high in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, this cold, clear water flows 926 miles before it empties into the Rio Grande in Texas. The Browns run wild, and the river is continually stocked with Rainbows, making this a prime fly fishing location.
We recommend checking out the Orvis fishing report here for the most up-to-date information on weather, water and fishing conditions.
The Pecos offers some truly exceptional waters for casting in a beautiful setting. Let us help you plan your fishing trip.
