Weekly Fishing Report: March 4

on March 4, 2018 - 7:24am
Los Alamos Daily Post
Sports and Outdoors
Despite the cold temperatures that New Mexico had last week, most lakes did not refreeze and have open water for bank fishing. The exception is Lake Maloya in Sugarite Canyon State Park near Raton. It iced over and is closed to fishing.
If the weather warms up this week as it is forecast to do, the ice may melt and Lake Maloya will once again have open water for bank fishing. Call ahead to 575.445.5607 to check on conditions.
The snowstorms last week helped a little bit to increase the snowpack.
