Rio Penasco reports

Tim Mack (sportsmanselite) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: The ranchers are irrigating so water levels can drop real fast. The water is clear. Caught many Rio Grande Chumbs and a few Rainbows. Still can't locate the Browns. They are not holding where they used to. (04/22/10)

Rio Penasco descriptions

Andy Idema (aidema) wrote - The Rio Penasco is a spring creek with about 9 miles of good fly fishing water loaded with wild browns and rainbows. It is located in southeastern New Mexico about 45 minutes east of Cloudcroft. A number of springs gurgle up along the Penasco keeping the water temp between 52 and 60 degrees year round. It fishes well year long and anglers will find wild browns and rainbows averaging 10 to 14 inches with a good chance of catching a 20 inch fish. (08/10/08)

most of the rp is private pay-2-play stream of mediocre quality. poor ecological practices of area landowners are painfully obvious everywhere. there r wild trout here, but stocking by private landowners does take place n significant #s. (1/19/13)

Interested in fishing in Rio Penasco, who would we need to contact to be able to fish on the private land and is there places to stay around there if we made a trip around August?   |  Reply
