I heard open water at dam and frozen towards inlet. With the heat and wind it will be open soon.

I have heard at one time that lake was a top pike lake. Anybody know if it is still good? If not what happened?

Back in the 80s and early 90s it was a spectacular pike lake - lots of 10 - 20 lb fish nand bigger, along with loads of 3-5 lb walleyes. There were huge schools of perch up to 13 inches and very fat. The pike's forage base was the perch and, for reasons I was never sure of, the perch population crashed and the population of big pike followed. Then came drought, drawdown for dam repairs and other things.

I have heard in the last couple of years that the pike population is on the rebound, but I haven't fished it for 12 or 15 years.

It is amazing how systems can crash, hundreds of variables working together makes a trophy lake, start pulling out the little pieces and the whole thing goes down the drain.

I have property in Costilla New Mexico and can't wait to spend a week down there. I have to go down there soon to help my father-in-law measure out a site for a sub-floor.
