Over the last two months I’ve spent a lot of time on the water catching kokanee in the Pacific Northwest, but jumped at the opportunity to return to Northern New Mexico to catch high mountain trout. With so many options to choose from we opted to drive to Cimarron River, particularly because many of the other rivers in the region were running high and muddy. Fortunately, the Cimarron is mostly controlled, although we did encounter tainted water. Still, it proved to be the right choice as we easily caught dozens of rainbows and a brown.
