As water levels lower the fly fishing is improving on the Racecourse. We catch smallmouth bass and both rainbow and brown trout. We like to float fish this stretch in the evening. We get whitewater excitement and fishing action at the same time.
Funyaks are available on request and at NO additional cost, for the Rio Grande Gorge full-day trip, the New Wave No Wave half-day float trip and the Racecourse half-day trip. Kids LOVE the funyaks. Unless you are “all thumbs” you should be capable of navigating the rapids on your own in our funyaks. The funyak fleet is always accompanied by guides, either in rafts with other guests or in their own funyaks.
There is nowhere like the Taos Box. See for yourself, in this video that summarizes our 2011 Box season, produced by Britt Runyon Huggins, NWRCo Operations Manager and Official Videographer. He not only guides his raft, but does video at the same time! Enjoy and book your trip on the Box for next year.
The Summer in Northern New Mexico is upon us here on the Rio Grande River. Not only do we raft the whitewater but we also swim it. These folks are just cooling off.
While on a visit to the Glorieta Baptist Assembly, Nate Gerber (aka “Gerb”), the Youth Pastor of the Island Church, of Padre Island, Texas, brought 32 young folks (and a few adults) to raft the Racecourse Class 3 white water stretch. Here’s shots from their trip. Thanks Gerb! See you next time.
