There will be no updates for the next week as I will be hunting deer/elk on my friend’s private ranch in southern New Mexico. But here is all you need to know for the week. The weather will be consistently gorgeous with highs in the mid sixties and lows in the mid thirties…with bright sunny days. Although there will be no stocking until the first part of November, Jemez area waters are fishing very well right now, especially Fenton Lake. Now is a great time to be in the Jemez Mountains. Amanda’s Jemez Mountain Country Store is open 363 1/2 days a year….closing on Christmas Day and a half day on Thanksgiving. Our summer hours are 8:30 am to 8:00pm every day. Come on up and say hi. We’d love to see you.
As of Monday September 1, 2014 8:00 am the fire danger within the Santa fe National Forest, Jemez Ranger District, has been raised to MODERATE. There are currently no fire restrictions.
****CAMPGROUND ALERT**** Fenton Lake State Park and Jemez Falls Campgrounds remain open. Vista Linda Campground has been reopened and will remain open throughout the winter. San Antonio Campground is closed for the winter. Redondo and Paliza Campgrounds remain closed.
*****WATER ALERT***** If you are planning to camp the Jemez any time of the year, please fill up your water tanks in your campers and RVs prior to coming to the Jemez. There are no options to do so once you arrive.
The new license year began on April 1, 2014. A new fishing license is required to fish in the State of New Mexico. License fees remain the same. $35 for an adult resident and $11 for a junior (age 12-17) resident. Kids (11 and under) fish free as do adults over the age of 70. There is a senior license for those age 65-69 for $18. All fees above include the required habitat stamps. Licenses are available at Amanda’s Jemez Mountain Country Store or you can purchase your license online at the NMDGF website. Amanda’s also stocks a full line of bait and tackle.
