The Historic Mulcock Ranch Quality Waters

The Mulcock Ranch is located 15 miles east of Mayhill, NM. It is a working Cattle Ranch. This section of the Penasco varies from still pools that exceed 10 foot drops to magnificent 40 foot waterfalls surrounded by the 60 foot high canyon walls.

     Only artificial flies with a single barbless hook are allowed. The Penasco Spring River Flyfishing Club was created in 1998. Members are allowed to keep one fish per year that exceeds 26 inches. Membership in the club is limited.

     The basic membership costs $1,000 for unlimited fishing per calendar year. Spouses and full-time students over 12 years old cost and additional $250.

     Members are allowed to bring 2 guests at a cost of $50 each. The same guest can fish only 3 times a  year.

     For those who are not familiar with this beautiful stretch of river and want to fish it - the Club offers a "test drive" of $100 a day that is applied to a membership if you like what  you see and choose to join.
