East-Central, including the Pecos River
Coyote Creek — The flow is 1.5 cfs. No report.
Pecos River — The flow is 34 cfs. The river is continues to fish well. The water is very clear, so go to long leaders, fine tippets and a smaller flies. Some midges but blue winged olives are the only dry fly game left on the Pecos. Nymphing with a dry dropper rig can end your slump if they aren’t coming up on your dry fly. Try flashback pheasant tails or a tungsten micro may. The river was stocked with 999 triploid rainbow trout last week.
