I fished a small mountain stream that I really like. It has challenging terrain, the fish are good sized for the water, and the area is beautiful.  I haven't been able to fish it this year due to the high water levels. Believe or not, run off has just started to slow. Yes, we had a lot of snow this past winter.

I caught browns and rainbows. It was fun fighting them in a 6-8 foot wide stream with a 7 foot line.

Here are some of the fish:

    1. I don't know about better, but I prefer a level line for all my moving water tenkara.

    1. I've never fished NM. I'd love too. Maybe someday I'll get down there.
