Fishing in New Mexico

Ti Piper

New Mexico is an angler's delight. It has more than a thousand miles of fishable creeks, streams, and rivers and almost a quarter-million surface acres of lakes and reservoirs. This book is a complete guide to fishing in all of these waters.

Over two hundred public, private, and Indian reservation-fishing areas are covered. From the state's two best-known fishing areas--the San Juan river and Elephant Butte Reservoir--to all of the waters associated with the state's ten drainages, this book provides detailed information for each site on location, size, depth, shoreline description, fish species, suggested angling techniques, seasonal fishing reports, road access, camping and boating facilities, and handicapped accessibility.

This book is sure to become indispensable to two types of anglers: beginners, young and old, who want to take up the sport, and veterans--including newcomers to the state--who seek up-to-date information on all species of coldwater and warm water sport fish in New Mexico.


"This book should be part of every New Mexico angler's library."
