Well fishermen are finally sending in reports from Stone consistently and are reporting a lot of what you may have already guessed. Fish are being caught by those willing to put in the hours, and mighty fine fish indeed. Two fly fisherman reported monster rainbow trout (24” with one topping the fisherman’s guess-ta-mate scales at 6Lbs) on damsel fly patterns. Fisherman using Dare Devils are also reporting sizeable catches in the evenings.
Mundo Lake has been drawing boat anglers as well as shore fisherman all week. With this increased traffic and use of the lake remember folks; the lifejacket you ware is the one that saves a life. Also with increased thunderstorm activity please stay safe and off the lake if lighting is approaching.
The Navajo River is running well with spring runoff but anglers are slowly trickling in information about spinners in the evening in rainbow and brown trout colors bringing the fish. Still have yet to receive a report of fly anglers utilizing the river.
Get out there and catch a whale, and remember to stay safe
P.S. Today members of the Natural Resources Departments went out in force and cleaned Mundo, Stone, Embom, Dulce, and the Navajo River. Hats off to these employees who took the whole day in the heat to make the Jicarilla and even better place to fish and enjoy! Please remember to utilize trash cans or pack out what you pack in.
