Brazos River 

Exclusive private access to 3 miles of the Brazos river for fly fishing.

Corkins Lodge guests get exclusive private access to 3 miles of the Brazos River, running through the southern side of the lodge grounds.  This stretch of the Brazos River is a premier fly fishing location in New Mexico.  The river at Corkins Lodge is open for fishing year-round, but May through October is considered the best window for catching the rainbow trout and brown trout found here.  

Note: From 1/4 Mile Hiking Trail Road (by the Tree House) upstream to Box Canyon is ONLY available for fly-fishing catch-and-release with barbless hooks. We can show you a map when you get here. 

New Mexico Fishing Licenses are required to fish in the Brazos River.

Our trout-stocked pond is perfect for leisurely fishing, families, and beginners.

Nestled in the pines near the cabins at Corkins Lodge, visitors will find our peaceful private pond available for a more relaxed fishing experience.  Enjoy the breathtaking view of the Brazos Cliffs along the pond banks while you fish.  The pond is ideal for families with children looking for more beginner fishing adventures.  The pond is stocked with rainbow trout. After a day of fishing in the pond, guests can enjoy grilling their catch for dinner back at their cabin, each appointed with a BBQ grill and full kitchen.
