A good meal and a nice place to stay is the best way to cap off a day of fly fishing in northern New Mexico or Southern Colorado.

Here are some restaurants, hotels and bed & breakfasts in the area that we think are very good. Hopefully they will give you a starting point if you are looking for places to eat out and/or to stay at while you are fishing in New Mexico or Southern Colorado.
