Brazos River Lodge New Mexico: Spanning over 4000 acres of the finest mountain habitat in northern New Mexico, Brazos River Lodge is a fishing and hunting property almost too good to imagine. The centerpiece of this one-of-a-kind property is nearly two miles of the fabled Brazos River, a fly angler’s dream stretch of meadow stream that holds trout known for remarkable size and tippet-busting fight. If that’s not enough, add in trophy elk hunting, unmatched privacy, and a client-spoiling lodge, and the result is a turn-key fishing and hunting property well suited to impress even the most seasoned fly fisher or veteran big game hunter.
Situated at roughly 10,000 feet, the ranch spreads across thousands of acres of rolling terrain covered dark spruce, fir, and aspen, along with grassy meadows that are sprinkled with wildflowers in the summer. The winter snowfall here is the source of plentiful water that appears in springs, small creeks, ponds, and the two primary forks of the Brazos River that converge just above the ranch. The abundant water is key to maintaining populations of elk, mule deer, black bear, mountain lion and pronghorn, and of course, to one of the best trout streams in all of New Mexico.
