Recommended Posts

Man I'm stoked biggrin.gif I just got word that I won a lottery slot to fish the Valles Caldera reserve (http://www.vallescaldera.gov/) in Northern New Mexico early this summer. This is high country native trout fishing at it's very best. I'll make sure to take LOTS OF PICTURES. thumbup.gif

Congrats! The mountains in NM are very pretty, camped up there in 3rd grade(ions ago) but remember them like yesterday. Every once in awhile I'll check out the pics over at moms too! I'm looking forward to seeing yours!!

Lottery?

 

How many permits are issued for such water? I'm afraid that eventually some of our rivers will be same. On some we are limited do to the availability of watercraft permits. It seems that the canoe liveries get the bulk, then there's the guides...

It's an interesting system. The stream is broken into 11 ~1 mile beats which are open to fish Thursday through Sunday. The stream gets no pressure (except from nature) Monday-Wednesday. Anglers purchase as many $5 tickets as they want for a certain day. Winners are drawn once for each season and each winner is assigned a beat. You can fish your beat alone or invite up to three other people. Basically, from 11-44 people fish this 13 mile stream 4 days a week.

 

Heres a nice picture:
