Jicarilla Hunt - Wednesday, June 22, 2016

22 June 2016

The weather has been hot here in Dulce. The trout bite has been slowing down with the warmer water, but the catfish bite has been awesome with one angler bringing in a seven pound channel cat this week.

Damsel flies have been coming off Embom in the evening with an active trout bite, but sadly I don’t carry a fly rod in the work truck. We have received no reports from anglers at Embom the last few weeks.

Anglers have been doing very well on tiger musky at Mundo with the largest fish landed this year being 42” and 14 pounds and some change. Remember these fish may look big and scary but they are quite fragile, practice good catch and release techniques if you are going to target these fish!

The Summer Derby is this weekend at Mundo, registration will be on the Mundo Spillway starting at 8:30. Fun for the whole family.

Stay out of the heat and enjoy the summer folks! I have a whole lot of photo’s to upload, I have not forgot just ran out of time this week.


Mundo Madness III

Jicarilla Hunt - Monday, June 06, 2016

Mundo Madness 3 will be held at Mundo Lake June 25th! Registration will start at 8:30 at the spillway and the derby will be from 9:30 to 3:30 with the awards ceremony at the Wild Horse Casino & Hotel. The cost of entry is $10.00 for youth (12 and under) and $20.00 for adults (13 and over). After registration there is a mandatory angler meeting, where we will discuss the rules and regulations etc.

Prizes for adult participants will include 600.00 in cash for differing categories including:

Largest trout (20" and over)- $150.00

Largest Bag of bass- $150.00

Largest Bag of bluegill- $150.00

Largest Bag of channel catfish- $150.00

(Must be 21 years of age to collect cash prizes, so if a minor wins they will need to have a parent or guardian present)

Adults are allowed to enter one bag of either bass, bluegill or catfish. All anglers who catch a trout over 20" will be allowed to enter into the trout category. This is a little different than previous years in an attempt to keep those "pro" cat-fisherman from dominating the rankings. 

Youth prizes as always include tackle and fishing related goodies.

Hope to see you out there.
