Weekly Fishing Report: July 18

The monsoon rains have started and most of the fishing spots on Santa Fe National Forest and Carson National forest that had been closed are now open to anglers. More good news is that you can now have campfires on both National Forest lands. Campfires help to make camping out an even more enjoyable experience.
Fishing during these summer rainstorms can be good as they can quickly cool the water, raise the streamflow and trigger the fish into biting. Pack some rain gear, but do take cover if there is lightening.

Tips When Exercising In The Heat

on July 17, 2018 - 12:35pm

By Stacey Castille

Wellness Director

The Family YMCA


The “hot” dog days of summer have arrived! We at The Family YMCA would like to remind you to take appropriate steps to stay safe while being active in these high temperatures. Our bodies have to work much harder to stay cool in hot weather so you might not be able to run or bike as fast or as far as you might in cooler temperatures. Make sure you listen to your body and follow these steps to avoid heat related illnesses.

  • Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of fluids throughout your day, not just when you are exercising.

Dear LAPS Parents and Guardians,

Hope your summer is going well. With less than a month before school starts (
school calendar), you may be looking for fresh ideas to encourage safe outside play and reduce screen time. If yes, here are some activities to share with your children.

Growing up in Los Alamos, I have fond memories of playing these games during the month of July and wanted to share this positive experience. In today's world of ever-present phones and technology, these outside activities may be more important than ever.
