The “Catch of the Week” section of the State Game and Fish Department’s weekly fishing report has a story to tell. With the exception of a brown trout caught in the Chama River below El Vado Lake, the big fish that were caught were warmwater species such as bass and catfish. The warm weather we’ve been experiencing has kept the fall fishing season from taking off.

That should change soon. The temperatures in the higher elevations are already dropping into the 30’s and it was actually below freezing Sept. 18 in Angel Fire.

Letter To The Editor: Old Smith's Building

on September 18, 2017 - 2:06pm

Has anyone considered looking at the Old Smith's building with the eye for a recreation facility?
 
Could it house gymnastics, some basketball courts, even an indoor ice skating rink? It has utilities. It has parking. It is large and tall. Perhaps even air conditioned.
 
Perhaps the creative minds in this community could think of a great community use for it. There is interest in more recreation facilities.
