Rio Costilla

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

The Valle Vidal section is open and fishing great! The RCCLA stretch has been fishing great this past week with dry-droppers and good with straight dry flies. Fish dries in the riffles, along the banks and in the bend pools. The Costilla has had a great dry fly flow this past week. A few afternoons have had some rain, keep an eye out on the lightning.

Seven-day forecast 

The Costilla should continue to fish great to good throughout July into mid September. If we keep getting some afternoon rains the flows should stay at this during the week, weekend flows are sometimes lower.. If flows are higher or water stained be ready to fish dry-droppers.
