Jicarilla Hunt - Thursday, December 14, 2017

Folks,

It is that weird time in between boating season and ice fishing season. Mundo is currently 40% covered with thin ice. It appears doubtful unless the weather changes significantly that there will be any ice fishing before 2018. Ice fishing season has become pretty hard to predict, but its 50 degrees outside during the day, and that makes it pretty hard to grow ice. Of course there is just enough ice to make shore or boat fishing impossible. 

Obviously there are no reports. I'll keep you all updated as the situation progresses.

Hope all is well,

J.

Jicarilla Hunt - Monday, December 04, 2017

Folks,

It feels like September. The long term forecast is predicting more of the same. No fishing reports have been submitted to the Fish Crew, but an issue has been noticed, the limit at Stone Lake is 2 trout per day. The Proclamation is available the main page of this website by clicking on the photo of it. You can also swing by the office and pick up a printed copy Monday through Friday 8-5. Please read and follow the proclamation.

The Ice Derby is tentatively scheduled for January 6th, but with this warm weather I would suggest just penciling it in. The temperatures are not showing any signs of cooling off, and there is no ice to be found at 60 degrees. I will keep everyone updated on the Derby but as some of the readers may be aware the Fish Crew does not control the weather. This is quite an abnormal year, if you remember last year we had safe ice by Christmas Weekend, and that was considerably later than years previous. Stay Tuned.

I will be out of the office from December 5th returning on December 12th. It turns out I like to fish too, and have sorted out a few days with a ten weight and box of clousers in an undisclosed location where it is warm.

Please e-mail and call as needed, I will respond to all calls and e-mails on the 12th. 

Best of luck!
