The Lake elevation is 3779.98 Storage is 157,700 acre ft.
The Main Lake is clear.
As of August 12th, Ute Lake is temporarily closed!
Okay, let me see if I can get all of this right. The new Covid-19 restrictions for Ute Lake: Day use only from 6:00 AM to 9:00 PM, no camping, only New Mexico residents are allowed to enter the Park and they must show proof of residency, Mine Canyon and the South side are closed, the Roger's Area is open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Monday thru Thursday, only the Marina ramp and the McFarland ramp are open. The North Park ramp, the Marina ramp, and the McFarland ramp are open Friday through Sunday. As of now, this is in effect until August 28th.
Fishing pressure has been pretty light this week. August is always a tough month and this one seems to be following the pattern.
Bass are slow to fair, Drop Shotting or pulling a Carolina Rig on Main Lake points is probably your best bet.
Walleye are slow, I nonly had a few reports come from folks that were jigging in 30 to 35 feet of water with Live Bait.
White Bass are slow to fair, trolling with medium or deep diving Crankbaits has been working some on scattered fish.
Catfish are fair to good on Nightcrawlers and Punch Bait.
Bluegill are good on Worms.
Until next week,
TIGHT LINES, GOOD FISHING, AND "MAKE 'EM BITE"!
