The 2023 fishing season has begun! But before you cast your line, make sure you have obtained a Special Use Permit for fishing in Valles Caldera and have a valid New Mexico Fishing License. It's quick and easy—and you directly support the management of the fishing program. To obtain a permit and a license, visit the NPS website. https://www.nps.gov/vall/planyourvisit/fishing.htm
Here anglers can obtain a backcountry pass through Recreation.gov and learn more about fishing locations at Valles Caldera National Preserve. So get out there and keep it "reel"!
