March 24th Main Lake Water Temp. 50 Degrees
The Lake elevation is 3778.24 and the storage is 147,000 acre feet. The Main Lake is clear.
It was a good week of fishing. We saw several limits come in and most of the folks that I talked to caught fish.
Walleye-There were some really nice females caught this week. Most of them were coming from 20 to 30 feet on Live Minnows or Jigs and Grubs. Rocky points on the Main Lake are a good place to start. One thing I did notice, it looks like the Walleye may be starting to transition into the spawn. This will slow down the females, but the males should fire up on Jerkbaits and Crankbaits.
White Bass-Ute Creek is the hot spot for White Bass. Jerkbaits, Crankbaits, and Grubs have all been knocking them dead! The females are still carrying eggs, so this should continue for a while.
Bass-There weren't too many Bass folks on the water this week, but those that were did pretty well. We saw a number of keeper Smallmouth and one 3 lb. Largemouth. Most of them came from Ute Creek and were caught on Suspending Rogues.
Carfish-Finally a report. The bite is starting to pick up in the Upper Canadian and the Upper Ute. They are shallow, 2 to 5 feet and are hitting Danny King's Punch Bait. We had reports of 3 to 5 lb. Channel Cat being among the catches.
Spring is finally here and our stocking orders are hitting the door. Be sure and stop by and take a look at new items we are adding, including the new line up of Lew's reels. We will be running an in store special on Bandit Crankbaits this coming Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, so come by and take advantage of the savings!
REMINDER-The new year for NM fishing starts April 1. The Licenses must be purchased on line from NM Game & Fish. There are no over the counter licenses, so you need to have your license before you come to the Lake!
The Logan Bass Club will be hosting a Texas Holdem Tournament on March 28th at the Logan Civic Center starting at 3:00 PM. Entry fee is $50.00 and there will be a cut off at 60 players. For more informaion call Calvin Liles at 575-403-6161.
Until next week,
TIGHT LINES AND GOOD FISHING!
