Cimarron River: The river is frozen from Tolby campground to the Pallisades, where you will start finding open water to fish. With the warmer conditions, the river will increase in flow from time to time bringing all the fish out of their hiding spots. Fishing is good using Chonomids, emergers, egg pattern, glass duck, and small pheasant tails.

Eagle Nest Lake: As of Sunday, the ice was reported as being between 9 and

10 inches thick and the lake was open to foot traffic only. Fishing was good

using small ice jigs, worms and wax worms for perch. Fishing was fair using ice

jigs, worms and Power Bait for trout. Fishing for all other species was slow. For

updated ice conditions contact the State Park office at (575) 377-1594.

Red River: Water flow near the hatchery on Monday was 26 cfs. Trout fishing

is good using egg patterns, wooly buggers, small pheasant tails, chronomids, glass duck

Rio Grande River: Fishing is good using leeches, wolly buggers, gummy worm fly, hot stones, and chronomids

Rio Costilla closed until 06/01/2015!
