    I remember the lower Rio Grande being dry at times in the 1960’s when I lived there. Of course once Elephant Butte and Caballa Dams were built it became difficult to tell what the natural flow would be, plus much of the Rio Grande Valley is highly productive farm land, using mainly the river to support it.

    Lots of western rivers are extraordinarily muddy right now, and darn near un-fishable.
