Haven't fish Trujillos Meadows in a couple of years. I really liked it though. Some big fish but they can really auger into the moss.

FT,
I fished it a couple times last year and did real well. The browns averaged 17" with our biggest at 23" The moss is usually not too bad til the end of July or so.
Do you happen to know anything about Platoro Res. I've only fished it from the bank never by boat.

That's been a couple of years ago too. fished it when it was REAL low about 3 years ago?? There are narrows up by the big rockslide at the upper end. We caught some nice rainbows and bunches of them. Used a wooly worm that we used to tie for Big Lake in the White Mountains- copper chenile with black hackle. Last time we were there, we fished the upper flats- shallow and clear. Used small black wooly worms on a fast sinking line. Most of the fish were smallish- maybe 16" at best. You couldn't strip it too fast and they would litterally SLAM it. Watched deer splashing and playing in the water a couple of different mornings- never saw that before. On up on the pass, take the road to the right to another small lake up on the ridge- caught some beautiful brookies up there out of a float tube. I want to live in that cabin!

So you fish the White Mountains too huh? I've gone down there in the early spring every year for 15 yrs till this year . I didnt make the trip but I think I will in the fall. Some real nice fishing! not to mention the beautiful scenery!
