Elephant Butte Lake Fishing Report

WEEK OF 06/10 — BLACK BASS COMING BACK..

Justin has been finding the Black Bass to be good on a top water early in the mornings.  Finding them in & around shallow pockets by any type of vegetation.  Usually in 3 – 8 feet of water.

Smallmouth are good on points or secondary points with rocks and sand transitions..  Enticers and most any dark colored furry jigs seem to be the ticket…

Smallmouth have been caught in the backs of coves, boiling with the White Bass also…

Whites still hitting on live minnows, Sasy Shads, Jigs, Kastmasters, Spoons, white or silver crank baits, Ripple Shads….. pretty much anything that looks like a bait fish…

Crappie are most everywhere, if you are fishing for Whites or Walleye, you will find the Crappie.

Walleye are still liking Chartreuse Wally Divers,,  or just about any Chartreuse, Yellow or Chrome long skinny crank baits…  Long Point and along the south side of Long Point to Rock Canyon is a good bet to start if you are fishing for Walleye…

Remember…if you don’t catch fish, change something & move…

Frank Vilorio has been putting his customers on limits of Walleye, Whites & Crappie most every day.  So if you really want to learn this lake.. Frank is the dude…

The water is still rising.. The flow out of the dam is massive… but there is still more water coming in up North than what is leaving down South..  What that means is that the River Rafting is awesome..  So you can fish in the morning, take the kids down the river mid day, catch a nap in the afternoon, then go fishing again in the evening and night….  Don’t get any better than that…

Huge Hot Cinnamon rolls again  Saturday and Sunday mornings…We have been selling out by late morning.. so if you are around early… get’cha one…

Tell the kids that if they don’t get the To-Do List done.. they can’t go fishing… Then load em’ up & come see us..
