Anyone know a good place near Albuquerque to go stream fishing for trout? I've got my gear and my family is coming to visit, would like to take my dad and bro fishing. Thanks!

The closest I can think of is the Jemez or Pecos. Not really that close and both still cold this time of year.

I don't know if it's still open, but there's Shady Lakes on or near the Sandia Pueblo Indian Reservation and I think Isleta Pueblo also has some lake fishing. But since they're both privately owned, any fish you catch will be paid for by inch or pound. I suggest you check it out first before just driving to either one.

Yikes! I just went to the Shady Lakes website >>> www.shadylakes.com

Kind of pricey. By the way, it's privately owned, not Indian owned. I'm fairly certain that Isleta is Indian owned.

Pecos River has been really good last couple of weeks. Try fishing upstream of Terrero campground. The water will rise as more snow melts and it will get cloudy, but right now it is pretty good.

Obviously you have never backpacked up to Horse Thief Meadows and eaten cutthroat for dinner. Too bad for you.

I like Heron Lake a lot but it's not real close either. It is peaceful though as motor boats are restricted to trolling speed only, thus lots of nice quiet sail boats!

The primitive camping areas on the west side of Heron are very nice. Great views of the Brazos Cliffs. I have caught some monster trout and salmon in that lake and it should be pretty full this season.

My mouth is watering already for fresh omega 3's<G>. Funny, I was in Sam's Club last week and Steelhead was cheaper than Salmon - major surprise for me.

Heron spells peace, where one can have a great time relaxing and hopefully fighting a big whopper for 30 minutes or so.

I ask a simple question, the truth I only wish. Are all fisherman liars, or do only liars fish?

And hopefully the big whopper won't be a carp. The creel at the end of the day will reveal any liars. Spring fever has set in to me. I need a trip to Alaska for some real fishing.

I miss the rainbow trout we used to catch in a small alke outside Telluride. It was called Trout Lake, actually. Very cold all year. Great fishing.

We used to go to William's Creek lake about 25 years ago. It used to be beautiful and pristine. I hear that place is a dump now.

There is always the San Juan below Navajo dam. I know what the monster trout will bite up there.

That place sucks. The mosquitoes made it miserable.

Yes, there's nothing better than fishing Alaska.

Yes, but then you have to deal with the GIANT MANEATING CATFISH!
