    Going to Puerto Penasco Weekend Before Christmas to Fish... Advice on Travel? Fly Fishing...

    Audsley - Yes! Good point, almost makes me want to drive the jeep just in case, but man, that'll be a brutal drive. We have air compressors in all the vehicles, but excellent suggestion. Chances are we will stick close by for the first trip and get a feel for things, but man I'd love to drive...

    Roberto - Thank you! I think I read you guys have crazy tides there, so those guys were just caught at the wrong place, at the wrong time. Really good to know there's bait that close in. I imagine there are larger fish in the troughs lying in wait. This is great news.

    Estevan - Nope, it sounds like you covered all your bases. There probably were some larger fish around, but as you say, too much competition. I've found sometimes when fish key in on something, that's all they want. I don't have a great deal of experience with saltwater, but I've seen trout...

    Estevan - So there weren't any predators working over the bait? Usually when it's oily the fish are getting busted pretty good by fish or birds. Hey man, I really appreciate the up to date info, I really do. Good to know there is bait so close in. How long did you fish it? I'm wondering if...

    Estevan - That's great news! Yeah, I plan on having 6-10 as far as rods go as well as sinking/intermediate and floating lines. I figure clousers, shrimp and bait fish patterns will be good to have on hand. It looks like I'll have the high tide Saturday/Sunday (22nd-23rd) afternoon, so that's...

    Gandydancer - Crazy that's how they roll down there. Generally when I've gone south of the border I've flown, so I've never really been tested while driving, aside from ATV's on the beach or through small towns such as Los Barilles and La Ribera. Crazy they want payment in cash on the spot. I've...

    Roberto, Splendid and Thank you! Yeah, wind always seems to be an issue when on open water. I was in Texas few weeks ago going after redfish and it was non-stop wind at 20 or more kts. We do plan on bringing several rods from 6-10 wt's to accommodate the wind with intermediate and floating...

    Audsley, thank you for the in-depth reply. I really appreciate it. I have very little experience salt water fishing, but have enjoyed much luck on the few times I've gone. Basically, we are mired in snow and cold here in Durango, and I have a few days off before the holiday; and I really like...

    Tico, thank you for the reply. Yes, it seems the trip to Rocky Point is with out restrictions. East side of Sonora is the sketchy part. We just booked. Now I need to do research on fly fishing off shore unless I can find a reasonably priced guide to take me out for a few hours. Looks like...

    Going to Puerto Penasco Weekend Before Christmas to Fish... Advice on Travel? Fly Fishing...

    Greetings guys, I am from Durango, CO and am considering the drive to PP/RP to fly fish for the weekend. I've been expanding my fishing ever since the EPA released pollutants in my home river the Animas, which set the river back, and finally, in July, the river was pretty much killed off after...
