I've been out to Philmont several times and have had boys fish the
rayado in the past with much success. The trout are small but plentiful.
Plan to rise early out of Fish Camp en route to New Abreau. The walk
trough Rayado Canyon is best done at sunrise. Bring lots of film. It
has been one of my favorites.
Have a safe trip.
