Jicarilla Hunt - Thursday, February 14, 2019

Folks,

Winter is here again! Good news for the lakes! Not the best news for driving conditions. Heavy wet snow is falling here and isn't supposed to slow for a while (if you believe the weather person...). Be careful out there! Last report was 10-12" of ice on Mundo and the fishing was noted as being "consistent". One angler reported many fish in the 12-16" range on jigs. That was the only report I received this week. Maybe you guys and gals are finally starting to get tired of all the fish tacos? Just as a side note the office will be closed Monday in honor of Presidents Day.

Get out and enjoy the snow!

Folks,

I guess the ice fishing gods are looking favorably on us, or maybe it was just the "Polar Vortex" but it got colder and snowed. Roads are packed snow with lots of ice and slush in the mix so please drive safe. The ice sheet stood up to the rain and is still holding solid at Mundo. Please be careful as conditions can change very quickly this time of year. I have not received any new fishing reports.

Enjoy the weekend!

Jicarilla Hunt - Monday, February 04, 2019

Folks,

All the snow that the weatherman projected turned out to just be rain. There is slush on the roads, and a lot of the snow in the lake watersheds is melting with rain and above freezing temperatures. Water is flowing into the lakes which can make the ice sheet deteriorate quickly and become unstable. Please use extreme caution. The roads are going to be SLOPPY!

Lets hope the rain turns to snow, and the temps drop, otherwise ice fishing season might be coming to an end.

I'll update the blog on Thursday with new information,

J.
