The Cimarron Canyon is a favorite of my family to go fishing, sightseeing, and hiking. If you ask the locals in Ute Park where the good fishing spots are, they will be more than happy to give you some spots. Make sure and stop at the old man face and the palisades for some interesting history.

Tis is a beautiful river that has streams that you can access thru various rest stops along 64. Very peaceful, beautiful trails in the woods as well.

One of the mot scenic canyons and fisheries in the country. The public use portion of the Cimarron River Canyon runs for 8 miles from the Tolby campground on U.S. Hwy 64 East just below Eagle Nest, NM and terminates at the Village of Ute Park, NM own canyon. The 8 mile public portion is a NM State Park. Just below the Tolby campground you will find the "Special Trout Waters" that runs for the next mile and a half. Single barbless, no bait area and one fish only, 16" or better. You must have a daily $5 parking pass to park in the state park areas. An annual pass at $40 is available from the Park Rangers office. You can camp and RV. The Cimarron River is a tailwater off the Eagle Nest Dam. The fish include Browns, Rainbows, Cuttbows, Brookies. May through October produces some of the best dry fly fishing. The local fly shop and guide service Dos Amigos Anglers in Eagle Nest, NM can provide daily updates on water flows, fishing conditions and the best flies.

Have fished this river twice. The latest time 10 Aug 2014. It is a small river about ten to fifteen feet wide, one to three feet deep and heavily overgrown in most places. Also, full of dead timber. Very tough to fish. See where some have caught great fish, but wonder if they had a guide and fished private waters?

I visited Cimmaron and Eagle's Nest every singer growing up. It's so beautiful! The locals are nice. The town of Eagle's Nest has grown a little, but not enough to detract from the landscape. They have a wonderful Subway, great fishing, fun ships, and lots of local decor!!
