Could this be a Cutbow?

Recommended Posts

I was able to fish the San Juan River on my final day of this amazing trip. I made the 13 hour drive out from Texas to Farmington NM where my cousin lives and stayed at his house. Then was able to fish the San Juan River before driving out another 7 hours to Six Lakes fishing resort in Utah where I did some amazing fishing for some beautiful rainbow, brown, and tiger trout. I even got a nice bass there. Then drove back to my cousins and stayed at his house again before being able to fish the San Juan River one final day. The first day I fished the San Juan on my trip out, the weather got in the way of me catching as many fish as I had hoped for. However, Finally on this last day fishing, I was able to land quite a few very nice fish. I had one of the best days I have ever had on the Juan, and caught one of the largest fish I have ever caught on this amazing river.

Located in the north west corner of New Mexico, the San Juan River is a destination fly fishing river. People come from all over the world to fish this river, and for good reason. It is teaming with trout and other wildlife. However this means that it is very busy. Lots of people are fishing, and its not uncommon to see people shoulder to shoulder in the good spots. I find my best luck fishing happens when I go exploring for more secluded spots. And this is what happened on this trip. I went on a walk through what are called the braids and to the back end of the river where there usually isn't too many people, and was able to land a very nice fish that had to be over 20". Then I drove down to another more secluded area called Munos, where I was able to get a few browns in the net.

Thanks. It sure looked like had one. Cutts and rainbows can naturally reproduce.
