Abiquiu Lake:Fishing was fair using streamers, jerk baits and topwater lures for smallmouth bass. The best reports came from anglers fishing in the evening hours when weather would permit. Fishing for walleye slowed considerably with just a few caught by anglers using bottom-bouncer night crawler rigs. We had no report or other species. The surface water temp was in the mid 70s.

Animas River: Water flow near Aztec on Monday was 311 cfs. We had no reports from anglers this week. 

Albuquerque Area Drains: We had no reports from anglers this week. 

Bluewater Lake:Fishing was fair to good using crank baits, spinners and spoons for tiger musky. Most of the musky caught were less than 40 inches in length. Fishing was fair to good using hot dogs and shrimp for catfish. Fishing was slow for trout but there were a few caught by anglers using worms and Power Bait. An alternate ramp has been provided for boaters which is a bit deeper than the main boat ramp area. Anglers should be aware that it is illegal to use bait fish at this lake.
