Despite the cold temperatures that New Mexico had last week, most lakes did not refreeze and have open water for bank fishing. The exception is Lake Maloya in Sugarite Canyon State Park near Raton. It iced over and is closed to fishing.
If the weather warms up this week as it is forecast to do, the ice may melt and Lake Maloya will once again have open water for bank fishing. Call ahead to 575.445.5607 to check on conditions.

Sickly Coyote Survives Winter Appearing Healthier

on March 3, 2018 - 1:02pm

This coyote spotted today along the edge of Pueblo Canyon survived the mild winter and appears much healthier than in December when she was severely underweight and missing most of her fur. Chairman James Robinson of the Land of Enchantment Wildlife Foundation has been keeping an eye on her and under the right circumstances intends to entice her to eat a pill to cure her mange. He recently imbedded a pill in a chicken breast and said she was sniffing it and likely about to devour it when two ravens swooped down and snatched it away from her. Photo by Carol A. Clark/
