Weekly Fishing Report: July 26

Los Alamos Daily Post
The best stream fishing right now is in the upper Chama River above El Vado Lake.
The streamflows are holding up well so far this summer and have been above normal. About the only real drawback right now is that sometimes afternoon thunderstorms can muddy the water. The Chama River below El Vado Dam has also been fishing well and streamflows there have been at a very fishable 300 cubic-feet- per-second during the week. The Chama River below Abiquiu Dam is still very murky and the fishing has been slow.
