Elephant Butte Lake Fishing Report

Thursday February 2, 2017

First Fishing Report of 2017..

well there is not much to report..as usual this time of year..

All species have run and hid…  even the catfish are slow..

We are starting to get some fishermen through on weekends.. live bait seems to be the bait of choice..

If there is anything biting, it will be along main lake points and cliffs … around 25 feet deep or so..

On the up side.. the lake is rising fast..  Contrary to previous reports, the lake levels should be good this year.  We have had good

rains up north in the last few months.. there is an above average snow pack upstream just waiting to melt and move down here…

Our catfish tournament is still scheduled for March 11th..  So put it on your calendar.. I have been jumpin’ through my butt for the last month or so.. so I still do not have details.. But I promise that I will post em’ in the next week or so.. Still getting logistics together, like rules, entry fees… etc…

The weather is going to be very nice this weekend..  So put off the “honey-do” list one more week and come see us..

try to find some fish for me to report…
