    1st and foremost, WELCOME!
    I have fished the Rio Grande, the Gila, Elephant Butte Reservoir, Eagle Nest Lake, and many other creeks and ponds. I grew up in northern NM, lived in Questa. After the Service, I lived in Silver City (family still there).
    There are lots of fish in NM. You've got lots of opportunities there.

    Welcome to the BOC. Like Mike, I've fished Eagle Nest...a great, great trout and kokanee lake. Elephant Butte has a great rep for cats, although it was a bit far for me to drive from SE New Mexico. Conchas and Ute Lake have good walleye and crappie populations. Huron Lake in the northwest and Abiquiue,(sp?) are good also. Oh yeah, NM has fish, just not always next door.

    Hello all and thanks. New Mexico is such a beautiful place. Camping and fishing is just the only way to go for a decent vacation/weekend getaway. Went to Payson, Az. last summer and I just loved it, but the wife thought it was a bit suffocating if you know what I mean. I can only imagine what it was like down in the valley to the south. We ve been to the eastern parts of NM a number of times just never did any fishing cause we were working.
