    Reservoirs: Ute (best for both species) and Bluewater (good mid-day summer fishing for channel cats; use lead sinkers on the bottom). Also Elephant Butte, Cochiti, Caballo, Navajo, Brantley, Conchas, Abiquiu, Sumner, Santa Rosa. Smaller lakes, such as Bear Canyon, Eunice, and Jal, are stocked with channel catfish.

    Rivers: Gila (Gila Hot Springs downstream to the Arizona Line); portions of the San Francisco; portions of the Rio Grande; Rio Chama (between Abiquiu and El Vado dam); Percha Dam; and stretches of the Pecos River below Sumner and Brantley reservoirs. In rivers, both species tend to congregate around brushpiles and holes below sandbars.

    Dear Sister Jenn;
    First, I see your a relatively new member so:
    WELCOME ABOARD!:big_smile:
    Second, no I have not tried those areas for fishing but the wife and I are planning on heading out west again next year and we WILL be taking our fishing equipment with us.
    I'm sure you will get a lot of feedback, from the members that have fished these areas, and a lot of questions, from those that have not fished those area's but will be planning too.
    I'll keep you in mind if I run across a question about these areas, I will send them your way. :big_smile:
    "THANK YOU" for sharing the info! It's what the BOC is about!:big_smile:
    And since this is a rainy, dull, Monday morning, I'm going to Rep ya for sharing your information. :big_smile:
    Fraternally,
    Coyote1

    Hi Jenn, I've fished a bunch of those waters and most of the other ones are on my list to check out. Thanks, Jim
