I will be yakking on Elephant Butte Lake New Mexico and that area in April. If anyone has some wisdom to send my way about the yakking out that way it would be appreciated.

I have hiked etc in the magnificent mountains just west of EB Lake but never have been on the lake there. There is supposed to be some neat stuff upstream on the Rio Grande from the lake itself.

I haven't fished there much, just a few times. Last time I was there was April 2014, so take it for what it's worth. The lake was fairly low, and there is now quite a bit of water in there. We camped near Marina Del Sol. The best luck for bass I had was in the coves on the opposite side of the lake, the east side I guess. Mainly fishing soft plastics, 4" senkos in pretty dark colors. We manged to catch some walleye, crappie, and catfish trolling bottom bouncers near the marina as well. At that time another kayak angler caught all the white bass he could stand near the head of the lake on crank baits. Hope that helps.

Thanks I did when I was there three years ago. Haven't been back since my initial post. Planning on being in the area this fall though.
