Jicarilla Hunt - Monday, March 26, 2018

Despite the first day of spring being on March 20th it almost seems like it should still be winter. But sadly it is not. The Western United States is currently facing down one horrific drought year, and our recreational fishing lakes are not immune to the ever warming and drying conditions this year appears to be providing. Some watersheds in New Mexico are currently sitting below 10% of average water, and some are nearer to 2%.

The fishing reports I have been receiving seem very good. One angler reported one fish out of Stone Lake, but he did not indicate a size. And Many anglers at Mundo have been reporting 18 plus inch fish with lots in the 14-16" range. The road has dried out but that can change with any new moisture.

Good luck!
