Cimarron River

3.5 Miles From Eagle Nest to Start of Cimarron River

Cimarron River is home to Bear, Mountain Lion, Mule Deer, Elk, Turkey, Eagles and the best part, World Class Fishing and Fly Fishing! Flowing out of Eagle Nest Lake, the Cimarron River is known for producing large, natural spawning, Trophy Brown Trout. Year after year the Cimarron River has been recognized as one of the best rivers to fish in New Mexico. It is a very technical water shed that holds large rainbows as well as brown trout, with opportunity and access for fishermen of every level. Within 5 Minutes from the town of Eagle Nest, NM, you can choose to drive along the road, fishing deep pockets with easy access, or choose to crawl, climb, or smash through the bushy thorn terrain that could hold the fish of a lifetime. This bushy terrain and clean running river water offers a healthy ecosystem for bugs, making this one of the best Fly Fishing Destinations for dry fly and nymph fishing.
