Rio Costilla

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

We've been seeing some wonderful dry fly fishing the last week both in the Valle Vidal and RCCLA sections. Still seeing some stoneflies. No need to get on the water early, better fishing is late morning through the afternoon. Fish the bend pools and riffles with dry flies. Might need to add a bead head dropper.

Seven-day forecast 

The Rio Costilla should continue to fish through July on into mid September. Be on the look out for some afternoon rains.
