This fishing report has been generated from the best information available from officers and anglers. Conditions encountered after the report is compiled may differ, however, as stream, lake and weather conditions alter fish and angler activities. Conchas Lake Fishing for bluegill continued to be very good this past week. Anglers did well using small spinners, worms and a variety of flies. Fishing for walleye was fair-to-good for anglers using deep diving crank baits, grubs and bottom bouncer/night crawler rigs. Fishing for largemouth and smallmouth bass was good using senkos, tubes, lizards and top water lures. Fishing for white bass was fair for anglers using crank baits, grubs and spinners. Fishing for catfish was fair for anglers using liver and cut bait. Ute Lake The best reports from anglers this past week came from those fishing for catfish. They did well using liver, cut bait and dough baits in the evenings and night time hours. Fishing for bass and walleye slowed considerably with a cold front that moved through the area. Some walleye were taken by anglers trolling deep crank baits, spinner/minnow and bottom bouncer/night crawler rigs at 25-to-30 feet. Fishing for smallmouth bass and largemouth bass was slow-to-fair for anglers using tubes, jigs, senkos and finesse worms at 10-to25 feet on main lake points. Special announcement Limited angling for Gila trout will open July 1 on select streams in southwestern New Mexico. These streams have been closed to fishing since 1966.
