Jicarilla Hunt - Thursday, March 30, 2017


It has been a very busy week. The fishing seems to be heating up as the turbidity settles in Mundo Lake and the temperatures rise (currently about 49 degree water temp for those interested in such things). Today in the two hours I was out helping install the docks three rainbow trout were landed one 18" one 16" and one 14" all on worms.

Mundo Lake is as full as she can be without flooding the spill way parking lot. As of today 3 docks have been installed by the Fish Crew.

All good news. More good news is Stone Lake has recovered to 2012 levels, which is still low, but much much much better than the last 5 years! The lake will be stocked with 8-9" fish this Spring. of course a hot dry summer could totally deplete the gains received thus far in 2017...This stocking is a gamble on a nice cool summer, a good monsoon, and hopefully an awesome winter again. I know that sounds like a lot of wishes, and it is. I would not suggest planning a Stone Lake fishing trip this year as they are going in at 8" to 9"! It is possible they would be near catch-able sized by fall (if a few of the wishes come true). I will re-iterate this is a gamble, and of course I will keep you all up to date as the year progresses.

We are currently scheduling stocking for the spring so the fishing at Embom and Mundo will only be getting better than it already is, which is awesome!
