Valles Caldera


I'm off to Santa Fe for some work and fishing. With any luck I'll make it back without out any Cormac McCarthy like incidents-you know, being in the SW and all. I'll be camping in the Jemez Mountains http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jemez_Mountains. I will be trout fishing for a couple of days among lava domes in Valles Caldera National Preserve http://www.vallescaldera.gov/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valles_Caldera_National_Preserve -Note the several western films that were shot at Valles Caldera.

I'll be fishing on San Antonio Creek http://www.vallescaldera.gov/comevisit/fish/SanAntonio.aspx The preserve has very strict rules about fishing in the park, mainly to insure that you don't encounter a whole lot of people http://www.vallescaldera.gov/comevisit/fish/FishingTips.pdf. I'm fishing reach 1 on the far East of this map http://www.vallescaldera.gov/about/maps/static/fishing2009.pdf. Note the five domes just to the south of the river. Those are old lava domes. I can't wait. I have a box full of hoppers, ants, and beetles-which I've been told is all I'll need.
