Jicarilla Ice Report: 08 February 2016
Mundo Lake: Ice thickness: ten to ten and a half inches (10.0” to 10.5”) of ice covering the entire lake, Use Caution as we have been experiencing extremely warm day time temperatures and conditions can change rapidly! Ice sheet is snow packed with approximately 2” of snow.
Road has been plowed, but is still snow packs and slick. We are expecting more snow this week so snow coverage and road conditions might change. With warm days this snow may turn to mud.
Notes on fishing: Fishing pressure has slowed and fish are weary. No signs of ice melt, but this week is going to be warm according to the weatherman. Lighter line and smaller jigs might be what it takes as these fish have seen meal worms for almost a month and a half now. Reported catch of 1 catfish 2 trout and 1 bass from this weekend.
Embom Lake: The ice has become slushy and is NOT safe! DO NOT GO ONTO ICE! Embom is closed to ice fishing until further notice.
Notes on fishing: N/A.
