New Mexico Fly Fishing Lodge


It is with a heavy heart that we announce that this 2018 season will be the last season that we will be operating Cow Creek Ranch as a fishing and hunting lodge open to the public. It has been a good run, and we have been blessed to be surrounded by the most amazing clientele, employees, guides and community, many of whom have become family to us. After having such a remarkable opportunity over the years to share this special place with so many, it will be hard to find anything as rewarding as our jobs at the ranch have been. We hope all of you who have shared time with us at the ranch have amazing memories that you will cherish as well, and we do hope that you will stay in touch with us. 

We are not exactly sure of what the future holds for us or the ranch, but we do know that this is just the end of one chapter and the beginning of another, both in our lives and in the story of Cow Creek Ranch, a true New Mexico treasure.

If you would like to leave us a message or share with us your favorite memory of Cow Creek Ranch, please do so by leaving us feedback on the website or by sending us an e-mail to

We love you. Thank you for your support, friendship and patronage over the years.
