2020-05-08T12:27:13-07:00

By: Chris Shaffer With the Eastern United States dealing with high water this week we rerouted to New Mexico and decided to make a flame run to Fenton Lake this morning to try our chance at ice fishing in the Land of Enchantment for the first time. Ironically, to this day when we talk about [...]

New Mexico’s Eagle Nest Lake: Excellent for Ice Fishing

2020-05-08T12:27:42-07:00

By: Joe Vallejos It’s already been a good ice fishing season on Northern New Mexico’s Eagle Nest Lake and the good news is that ice should remain at least into mid March. It’s been two weeks since I was able to fish the lake, but the ice is still over a foot thick and the [...]

Trout Stocked In New Mexico’s Middle Red River

2019-10-31T08:53:35-07:00

By: Chris Shaffer Cooler days, cold nights, less fishing pressure and lower water levels are inviting Northern New Mexico anglers to fish the region’s lakes, rivers and creeks. The Red River is always popular yet the middle section behind Eagle Rock Lake tends to be overshadowed by the Lower Red below the hatchery and the [...]

Anglers Working Hard for Lower Red River Trout

2019-10-31T08:53:29-07:00

By: Chris Shaffer Reading local fish reports you would think anglers were catching trout every cast on Northern New Mexico’s Lower Red River. New Mexico Game & Fish’s weekly report stated action was very good. We reacted by flying to Albuquerque and driving north to the Lower Red to cash in on the action, but [...]

Pecos River Loaded with Rainbows

2018-04-18T18:57:26-07:00

By: Chris Shaffer Late summer and fall spells opportunity for trout anglers in New Mexico. Water levels have fallen to attractive levels, crowds are slightly lighter as many anglers are hunting and trout are more aggressive as cooler water temperatures have prevailed. In all, it’s an excellent time to trout fish, particularly on the Pecos [...]

By: Chris Shaffer Most rivers and streams in Northern New Mexico have finally receded to favorable levels and anglers are catching limits of trout following heavy stockings by New Mexico Game & Fish.

New Mexico’s Hopewell Lake Loaded with Trout

2018-04-18T18:57:59-07:00

By: Chris Shaffer It’s been an interesting spring and summer at Northern New Mexico’s Hopewell Lake. The small, high mountain lake took longer than normal to shed its winter layer of ice. Anglers used to fishing the lake in late spring had to wait. Spring wildfires closed access to the area while firefighters dipped water [...]

New Mexico’s Red River Loaded with Big Rainbows

2018-04-18T18:58:03-07:00

By: Chris Shaffer In New Mexico catching five-fish limits of trout that weigh more than 12 pounds isn’t common. In fact, it’s rare. Meanwhile, that feat can be achieved at the Red River, as long as you arrive soon. The river is stuffed with large trout now. It’s something we’ve never seen in the Land [...]

Pecos River Loaded with Trout for the Holiday Weekend

2018-04-18T18:58:11-07:00

By: Chris Shaffer The Pecos River is one of the most heavily fished rivers in Northern New Mexico. Located a short distance from Santa Fe and Albuquerque anyone who trout fishes comes here. Fortunately, the stocking truck arrives frequently. If the New Mexico Game & Fish didn’t stock it as aggressively as they do it’s [...]

New Mexico’s Eagle Rock Lake Loaded with Trout

2018-04-18T18:58:44-07:00

By: Chris Shaffer It’s hard to find a prettier place to fish in Northern New Mexico than Eagle Rock Lake. Minutes from Questa, the three-acre pond is loaded with trout after being stocked last week. In hopes of filming Pautzke Outdoors on a small, family friendly lake where parents can take their children to catch [...]
