Valles Caldera open to limited fishing on East Fork

The East Fork is now back open to trout fishing, although on a very restricted basis.  A maximum of 5 anglers can now fish instead of the previous 10. Obviously, fishing success is much more limited than pre-wildfire, but a 13″ brown was caught last weekend. The trout remaining are feeding on terrestrials, hoppers and beetles with hoppers being the preferred fly.  Water is extremely murky during and after rains. Best water quality can be found upstream from the shack. San Antonio fishing is closed for the rest of the season.
