    Default A little teaser for my fellow GSMNP fishers...

    Yours truly took a 5 hour drive up the the Valle Vidal in northeastern NM. It's pretty much the antithesis of Cosby Creek:

    - No felt boots necessary
    - Lots of casting room
    - Large fish
    - No rain

    But...they still slammed the trusty Elk Hair Neversink from Little River Outfitters!!!

    We caught more fish in two days than we could possibly count. Hail to the Valle Vidal!

    Enjoy,

    Nice...Valle Vidal is an area I would like to try. I've been out west twice, to Colorado, and we've done quite well, although the Greenback Cutthroats we thought we were catching turned out to be genetic imposters. I did manage to get one Rio, but it was all of 2 inches long. I'm heading out there again next summer; I already have my areas staked out, thanks to Google Earth.

    If you decide to go, this is your guy:

    Aurelio is a gourmet chef and he cooks ALL of your meals. He offers a lodge for fishers @ $150 per night including all meals!

    He will also guide you on the Valle Vidal and lots of private waters nearby. He's the best. Tell him Collin from Texas sent you.

    We will be back for sure.

    As for the famed Rio Grande Cutthroat, you will catch plenty on Comanche Creek in the Valle Vidal. That creek is about a foot deep and 4-5 feet wide meandering through the valley, but it holds Cutthroats up to 18 inches long! Most are 9-12 inches. We caught a number.

    They are endangered so it's obviously C&R.
