The Chama Valley offers many angling opportunities. The area is often referred to as New Mexico’s fishing paradise. The Timbers at Chama is centrally located amidst some of the best trout fishing waters in New Mexico and Colorado. Anglers can fish for brown, brook, or rainbow trout in private mountain lakes or streams on The Timbers property or venture out to the nearby Brazos, Chavez, and Chama rivers. Looking for a trophy catch? The New Mexico state record for brown trout was caught just 20 minutes from the Timbers at Chama. If you more interested in trout or salmon fishing, the Heron and El Vado lakes hold Kokanee salmon, largemouth bass, bluegill, and lake trout. Fly fishing for rainbow and brown trout fishing is available on the legendary Conejos River. The area is truly a fisherman’s paradise and all of these destinations are a short drive from The Timbers.
