I wasn't sure if LFMR had a fair amount of pressure during the winter? I heard the Guad could get shoulder-to-shoulder and I'm not much of a fan of that. Would rather have tough fishing to myself than the reciprocal.
it will be like that on the LMF as well. both places will be better during the week or during inclement weather. A float trip down the guad can be a lot of fun though.
Being in Lubbock I would head west to the San Juan. Lots of big fish, can be technical fishing; light tippet and small midges. Crowds are a lot lighter during the winter and there is plenty of water to spread out and have your own space.
