Fishing the Pecos River at about 7,500 ft elevation at 18 miles above Pecos NM. Weather is 60 to 75 deg. With a rain shower every afternoon. Have caught and released over 30 trout, but no Rio Grande cut throats….
Kept and ate a few rainbows for dinner. Caught some lovely Browns which have naturalized up here to the detriment of the native cuthroats.Great place to be when Texas is too hot to fish.

Once the time has elapsed, the tying begins.
