Rio Costilla Fly Fishing Report July 2001
Ed Adams New Mexico Fly Fishing GuideHigh flows were around 100cfs most of the month and low flows were around 25cfs. Fish were very active on weekdays, possibly because of overcast weather on the best days. These fish like low light situations and the lack of shade makes bright, sunny days tougher. On weekends the fish seemed to be in the faster water, probably using the current for cover. On low flow days it paid to fish this type of water {riffles}that we passed by on high flow days. Fishing these riffles worked well on weekends with small Hoppers. Ed Adams New Mexico Fly Fishing Guide Questa, New Mexico 505.586.1512
