River Characteristics

Description
Simply a beautiful alpine river. The headwaters begin high in the Sangre de Cristo mountains on the east side. You can fish all alpine zones and catch Brookies, Browns, Cutthroats, and Rainbows. For most of the way, the river runs parallel to the access road and the Lily Lake Trail.  Several ranches (private property) exist as you head up the road, past the campground, on the way to Lily Lake Trailhead. Fishing near the entrance of the state wildlife area, you will find Browns and Rainbows of all sizes. This area does see some moderate to heavy fishing action, be mindful. Further up, perhaps on the Lily Lake trails, Brookies exist. There seems to be an abundance of abandoned fishing gear (bobbers, line, lures, tippet, etc...); if you see anything, pack it out. 
Difficulty
Moderate difficulty. Fish spook easily. Be steathly.
