Pecos River fishing and Paddling – Lewis Canyon

« Two years ago, Bert and Dan Rodriguez attempted to kayak fish their way down 61 miles of the Lower Pecos River from Pandale Crossing to the Pecos High Bridge. Halfway through their trip, flash floods trapped them at their campsite, forcing them to abandon their gear and evacuate via helicopter.

Now, two years later, Bert and Dan have returned to the Pecos to finish what they started, and they’ve invited me along to document the trip.

In Part Three, we spend a day exploring Lewis Canyon, where we’ll find rock carvings that are thousands of years old. Then on Day Four, we’ll navigate several big rapids on our way to Painted Canyon, one of the most beautiful campsites I’ve ever stayed at. »
