2012 description: 'If your crew enjoys fishing cool and teaming mountain streams, this “Fishing Trek” will be a great choice! Feel free to bring your fishing equipment and purchase a license before fishing some of the best mountain streams you will come across. Start your trek by visiting famous pioneer Kit Carson’s home at Rayado along the Santa Fe Trail before following the river up to Olympia and Abreu. Enjoy the Mexican homestead, root beer at the cantina, and a delicious Mexican dinner as you listen to the waters of the Rayado flow by before resting for the evening. Your next stop at Fish Camp will leave no questions unanswered as to why Waite Phillips loved to spend time on the banks of the Rayado and Agua Fria. Tour Waite’s historic fishing lodge and fish the Agua Fria all day on your way to Bear Canyon Camp. From there, you’ll be able to fish the Rayado all the way from Phillips Junction to Porcupine, and on to Clear Creek, where you will hear booming .50 caliber black powder rifles as you come into camp. The trek up Mount Phillips will be challenging, but viewing Wheeler Peak, the Moreno Valley, and Baldy Mountain will be an unparalleled reward. Drop down into Cypher’s Mine for the evening “Stomp” with Charlie’s musician miners. From there, you’ll be able to fish the picturesque Cimarroncito Reservoir, hike to Window Rock, and wrap up your trek on the Cimarron River. Keep cool by the rushing water and enjoy leisurely casting while you wait for your ride into Base Camp.'

2011 description: 'Fly fishing enthusiasts will love this itinerary as several rivers run through this trek. Tour Waite Phillips' famous Rayado Lodge at Fish Camp on your way to a two-day layover at one of Philmont's premiere western lore camps, Beaubien, where horse rides, branding, and a chuck wagon dinner await your crew. Hike along the South Fork of the Urraca to Black Mountain and experience blacksmithing, civil war settlers, and black powder rifle shooting. Even mare program is available at Cyphers Mine where you can pan for gold and enjoy the "Stomp". On your way to Hunting Lodge, stop at Cimarroncita's rack climbing camp. While at Hunting Lodge, be sure to visit the Demonstration Forest area. On your last day, your crew will hike over the Tooth of Time. On your last day, your crew will hike over the Tooth of Time.'
