The Destination Angler Podcast

The Destination Angler podcast is THE podcast for anglers who travel. With Steve Haigh 

We go to the source, the local guides & experts, to build your knowledge of top fishing locations around North America.

Jul 28, 2022

Today our destination is the Rio Chama in Northern New Mexico with author, guide, and fly shop owner, Taylor Streit, Taos Fly Shop.  Wild and remote, the Chama is a great summer hike-in fishery with freestone and tailwater sections where anglers can get away from the crowds.  

Taylor gives a stem-to-stern rundown of the Chama and regales us with tales of commune living in the 1960s, eating jackrabbits, the last grizzly bear, tame elk, getting lost, catching “old Walter” the 26” Brown Trout, Taos Pueblo and the Northern New Mexico vibe. 

With host, Steve Haigh
