The Red River is one of the most heavily fished systems in New Mexico. Blessed with huge trout plants by the New Mexico Game & Fish, this middle section located behind Eagle Rock Lake in Questa doesn’t receive as much pressure as the Lower Red River or the Upper Red River near the town of Red River. Meanwhile, plenty of rainbow trout are available in this easy to reach section that offers plenty of public access. Armed with Pautzke’s new Fire Balls we fished the river two weeks after a trout plant and still caught two easy limits of trout in two hours. Watch how you can – too – in this episode of Pautzke Outdoors.
