Over this last holiday weekend, I took my family up to to the confluence of the East Fork of the Jemez River and San Antonio Creek to spend some time in the mountains just to get away, have a picnic, and let my kids play in the water. We managed to find a part of the San Antonio Creek that was slow and not as silt filled so the kids could play.
This is what happens to a river or stream after a large fire (Las Conchas Fire). Ash and silt runoff from the land is not able to slow down or hold the water. The streams look like thick chocolate milk. I managed to turn over some rocks, did not find many bugs in the water.
Needless to say, this part of NM trout streams will not be fishable for some time. The next best option in this area is the Rio Guadalupe.
