Remember these words: Questa, New Mexico. You heard it first here. Well, maybe not. If you saw the gorgeous photo essay by my friends Josh Duplechian and Toner Mitchell in the winter issue of TROUT magazine, maybe you heard it first there. Or maybe you saw the film “Querencia” – perhaps the most beautiful film Josh has ever done. But you need to hear about this place. More importantly, you need to visit this place. And you must fish here. Perhaps above all, you must fish here.
There are plenty of people who can guide you when you fish near Questa, NM. They’re great guides and awesome TU Business members. But I’m calling out one in particular: Chris Michael from Rio Grande del Norte Outfitters in Questa. You saw his face on the cover of the Winter 2020 issue of TROUT magazine. If you saw the film “Querencia” you saw him there, too. But that’s not enough. You need to be there. You need to be a part of what’s going on in Questa, with Chris and with the community and with the fish. I think Chris says it best himself: “It’s more of a spiritual accomplishment for me to go down to the Rio Grande and find a Rio Grande cutthroat. To know that they’re progressing, that’s the dream.”
