Jicarilla Hunt - Monday, October 02, 2017

Folks,

Fall finally has arrived and I can see snow in the high country from my office, so I guess winter isn't to far off. Fishing reports have been few and far between, but most folks have reported consistent action despite higher than normal weeds (for this time of year). Obviously boating is an advantage at Mundo.

Some updates on other things:

We will be starting fall stockings very soon. Stockings will include 8-9" fish as well as larger 16-20+" fish for Mundo and Stone.

One angler reported fishing from a kayak at Stone Lake and caught multiple trout in the 12-15" range (which is estimated to be the maximum size in the lake). Obviously this is fantastic news, the gamble of stocking this year thus far has paid off. Of course we still need to get these fish through the winter (lake is still very low). Boat access is challenging unless you are using a kayak or float tube, or similar hand launched craft. The department will conduct its fall gill netting of Stone next week, so there will be some more updates very soon. 

Hope everyone is enjoying the cooler weather, come and enjoy some fishing before winter is here to stay.
