Lake is now open for ice fishing

EAGLE NEST — Eagle Nest Lake State Park opened for ice fishing Tuesday, the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish and New Mexico State Parks announced.

All terrain vehicles and snowmobiles will be allowed on the ice at this time, but not on the state park shorelines and full-sized vehicles are not allowed. All vehicles must be taken into the park on trailers and driven directly onto the ice from the boat ramp.

Ice fishing access to the lake is available through the state park for a $5 per vehicle day-use fee, or free of charge through access points outside the state park boundaries.

Fishing for rainbow trout, kokanee salmon and yellow perch should be good because the fish have not been disturbed since the lake froze over a few weeks ago. Anglers are advised to protect themselves against the harsh elements by choosing clothing that provides protection from low air temperatures, wind and precipitation while at the same time allowing mobility.

Anglers are also asked to keep in mind the possibility of falling through the ice. Clothing that would severely restrict your ability to swim or to stay afloat isn’t recommended.

Hip boots or waders should never be worn, as they can fill with water and restrict movement.
