How's Eagle Nest Fishing?
August 8, 2017
Trout fishing is fair using powerbait and spinners. There is lots of grass along the shoreline, if fishing from the bank your best bet is to fish off the bottom using bait under a bubble.
Directions from Albuquerque take I-24 north to Santa Fe. Take 84/285 to Espanola. North to NM 68. Continue to junction of US 64 at Taos. Follow 64 East then follow signs to Eagle Nest.
