Pecos National Historical Park fishing program near Forked Lightning Ranch

Park Announces Plans for 2018 Summer Fishing Season

Beginning June 14, 2018, Pecos National Historical Park will be offering fishing permits for interested anglers along the Pecos River within the park boundaries. The 2018 summer fishing season will begin June 14th and end August 6th.

 For the 2018 summer fishing season, Pecos National Historical Park will be switching to an online reservation system.  The new system will be accessible as of May 1st, 2018; reservations can be made up to 30 days in advance via www.recreation.gov or by calling 1-877-444-6777.  A $15 per day fee must be paid online during the online reservation process. Please note that anglers are still required to check in and acquire a special use permit at the park visitor center prior to fishing.  For more information related to fishing, visit the park website https://www.nps.gov/peco/planyourvisit/fishing.htm.

 Within the park, three miles of the Pecos River are divided into three sections or “beats.” This approach offers anglers roughly one mile on the Pecos River to fish with up to two other people for the day. Three beats (for up to nine anglers per day) are available on the reservation system. 

 For more information about the park in general, contact Pecos NHP at (505) 757-7241 or visit our website at www.nps.gov/peco. You will also find our listings on the New Mexico True website (newmexico.org) and Tourism Santa Fe (santafe.org).
