Went down to see the new grandson but managed a couple of days to fish for a while. The Rio Grande itself was off for some reason, nobody catching nothing. I tried a couple of smaller tribs, the Rio Hondo and the Rio Pueblo. Both are very small streams with lots of small waterfalls and pocket water. The Hondo treated me best and I caught 8 browns all under 12", but quite acceptable for the first time on a stream. The Pueblo was not so kind, less overgrown than the Hondo and almost twice as big, it is a pretty brutal stream to fish with huge boulders and very brushy, thorny banks. Crawl over boulders, crash through thorny brush, fish a hole, repeat. On top of that the fish were just not very active that afternoon and I only caught 2 browns. Still it's a very senic area and I enjoy catching browns. I have to keep reminding myself that I was mostly there for the baby anyway. The first of many trips to that area, gotta try the cimmaron next time down and maybe hike into the box although that 8000 feet in altitude is kinda hard on us lowlanders in our 50's. Thanks to the guys who volunteered info on the area before my trip! some photos in my gallery.
