As forest closures across northern New Mexico continue, fish that were originally planned to be stocked in waters within the boundaries of closed forests will be rerouted to nearby waters.
“Regardless of the closures, the fish we are producing need to be stocked,” Assistant Chief of Fisheries Kirk Patten said. “Locations such as Eagle Nest Lake, Heron Lake, San Juan River, Rio Grande near Pilar and Rio Chama below El Vado will receive higher than normal numbers making fishing in these waters even better.”
Each week, the department posts a list of waters that were stocked throughout the week. The weekly fishing and stocking report highlights waters where fish are biting and what other anglers are using to catch the fish.
