Conejos River: This stretch of river below Platoro Reservoir holds larger fish than the headwaters and is mostly flies and lures only. Anglers brave enough to tackle a tough hike through Pinnacles Canyon are rewarded with trophy brown trout. The Conejos has a great stonefly hatch starting around June. In the afternoon/early evening there are great caddis hatches as well. Campground facilities are available along the river from Platoro all the way to Highway 285.
