As COVID-19 continues to force all of us to make changes to our daily schedule, the department would like to remind you that together we can make a difference. To help minimize the spread of the virus:
- Practice social distancing
- Wash your hands regularly
- Avoid nonessential travel
- Stay healthy and safe.
In this time of change, the department would like to encourage anglers to stay home, mend equipment and prepare for the upcoming fishing season. In the weekly fishing report, provided by Dustin Berg of Go Unlimited (supporting disabled anglers) and the Department of Game and Fish, we will be sharing tips and tricks to help you be ready to go on future adventures. Each week we will feature some different flies, lures, activities or cooking recipes that can be done at home.
In this week’s report, Berg he will go over a couple techniques to try — after travel restrictions are lifted — that can improve your ability to catch the wily trout species included in the New Mexico Trout Challenge. Along that same theme, he will discuss some ways to practice casting at home that will increase your fish catching skills when the time comes to get back out.
