The Rio Grande River originates high in the Rocky Mountains and carves its way into the Rio Grande Gorge just north of New Mexico. Most locals simply refer to it as the Gorge and it is home to hot springs, class IV white water rafting, and some of the best fly fishing in the southwest. Fly Fishing the Rio Grande is very technical, challenging, beautiful, remote, and fun. It often requires long steep hikes on rough trails, so if you are not interested in taking on the adventure on your own, think about hiring a local fly fishing guide. Taos has many great fly guides and they are well equipped to take you on an unforgettable fly fishing adventure.
