Elephant Butte Lake Fishing Report

Thursday May 31, 2018

The fishing is “Prolific”

Word of the day… Prolific –    present in large numbers or quantities; plentiful

Water temps are in the high 60 degree range.

Walleye bite is very good throughout the day,  fish on the bottom with Walley divers,  large cult tail jigs and swimbaits , you’ll find them in 3 to 10 feet of  water,  south long point is good.

White bass bite is excellent on main points leading to lake, slabs and Kastmasters are working good, and just about everywere else.. so if you are not catchin’ fish.. don’t stay in one spot,  MOVE…

crappie fishing is good around marinas,  ash canyon and Kettle top. Use live bait or small grubs.

Large mouth bass and small mouth bass very good in McRae and Ash canyon early morning on plastics.

Damsite is open for night fishing.. not sure if they are taking reservations, might be worth a call..

It’s gonna be HOT this weekend.. so get prepared.. jump in the lake if you need to..

Tell mama that the fishin’ is too good to miss a weekend..

come see us.
