Rio Guadalupe Cleanup – Saturday, April 20, 2013

New Mexico Trout has a tradition of welcoming the Spring opening of FR 376 between the Gilman Tunnels and Porter’s Landing with a volunteer trash pickup. That Forest Service road provides access to our Rio Guadalupe home water and it accumulates a lot of roadside trash over a season’s heavy use by the many people who visit that corridor. Doing these annual cleanups is one way we can express our thanks for the wonderful trout fishing opportunities the Rio Guadalupe affords while we help maintain it in a state that we like to visit.

105We will meet at 9:00AM at the Forest Service gate above the Gilman Tunnels on Forest Road 376. We will pick up accumulated trash along FR 376 and the Rio Guadalupe between the tunnels and Porter’s Landing seven miles upstream. The Club will provide garbage sacks, but drivers with pickups or SUVs are needed to help haul out the trash. RSVP to by 5:00 PM Tuesday, April 16th and we will provide you an excellent stream side lunch.

This project has been in the planning for many years, and will finally come to fruition. We will install fencing to restrict access and illegal camping on the Rio Cebolla, and enjoy our annual picnic catered by Rudy’s Barbeque. Block your calendar, and plan on joining us for this event. More details will be published soon.
