HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, JANUARY 8, 2010 5 Dept. of Game & Fish seeks comments on proposed fishing rule ;llanges Information courtesy NM DEPT OF GAME & FISHISanta Fe The Department of Game and Fish is accepting comments until Jan. 20 on several proposed changes to the state's fishing rules, including allowing anglers to rake one tiger muskie, and re- ducing the bag limit of striped bass at Elephant Butte Lake from three to two. Public comments will be used to determine proposals sub- mitted to the State Game Com- mission. Proposals can be re- viewed and comments submitted on the Department Web site, Corn- ments also can be submitted by regular mail to the Department of Game and Fish, Fisheries Divi- sion, RO. Box 25112, Santa Fe, NM 87504. Proposed rule changes: Open the Pine River to kokanee snagging during the time snagging is open at Navajo Lake (Oct. l to Dec. 31). The Pine River was closed while the De- partment tried to develop a spawning run. The run was suc- cessful but the Department was unable to consistently capture the fish. Other methods at Heron Lake have proven successful and there is less need to pursue a run in the Pine. Change the Special Trout Water designation on the Rio Cebolla above McKinney Pond near Seven Springs Hatch- ery to "protect native Rio Grande cutthroat trout by allowing an- glers to remove as many brown trout 'as possible. Open Caputin Creek to catch-and-release fishing. Capulin Creek was devoid of fish after the 1996 Dome Fire near Los Alamos. In 2006, the Department, working with the U.S. Parks Ser- vice and U.S. Forest Service, re- introduced Rio Grande cutthroat trout to the stream and closed the stream to fishing. Natural repro- duction occurred shortly after stocking and the population has taken hoId. Deer, elkand antelope hit hard by poachers in NW NM Information courtesy NM DEPT of GAME & FiSHSanta Fe Department of Game and Fish conservation officers are investigating multiple poaching cases in Northwestern New Mexico involving deer, elk and antelope. Fourteen deer, one elk and three antelope are known to have been killed illegally so far this Winter. While no parts of the antelope were removed from the scenes of the crimes, "the majority of the deer and the elk have only had the heads re- moved; and the rest was left to rot" said Brad Ryan, Aztec Dis- trict Conservation Officer in Aztec. Large mule deer are par- ticularly susceptible to poach- ing /t this time of year because they are breeding and not as wary as usual. In early Decem- ber, three of the deer were dis- Park; near Lindrith, Heron Lake State Park and near the Laguna Vista subdivision adjacent to Heron Lake. The elk was found at mile marker. 99 on US 64 east of Bloomfield. "These big deer are the rea- son Northern New Mexico is known for great deer hunting," said Bill Taylor, Game Manager for Northwest Area Operations. "If poachers continue to kill these big deer for their antlers, disrupting the breeding cycle, we could see a decrease in the population and quality of deer harvested in the region." The three dead antelope were killed about 5 miles north of Kirtland along an oil field service road. Largo District Conserva- tion Officer Matt 'Anthony said, "Two of the antelope were killed between Dec. 26 and 27, and a third antelope found covered "Rosa" portion of the Bureau of Land Management property near Navajo Lake. Other headless deer have been found .in Ahagadero Can- yon on the Jicarilla District of the Carson National Forest, the Horse Wash area in game man- agement unit 2A, Middle Mesa north of Navajo Lake State decapitated on tim.-.within a half milof the other two had been dead for approxi- mately a week." This case is unique because nothing was taken from the ani- mals. Investigations of these in- cidents are pending, but anyone with information about these cases or any other examples of the illegal take of wildlife should call the Operation Game Thief hotline, (800) 432-4263. Re- wards are being offered; up to $750 in the elk poaching case, up to $500.00 in the deer poach- ing case and up to $350.00 in the antelope case. To qualify, [ipsters must provide informa- tion resulting in an ai'rest or charges being filed. Hidalgo County 00HERALD 2i2 E. Motel Drive Suite B Lordsburg, NM 88045 Create a Special Trout Water on Cabresto Creek from Cabresto Canyon to the headwa- ters. The proposal would allow unlimited take of brook, brown and rainbow trout while protect- ing Rio Grande cutthroat trout with a catch-and-release rule. Ar- tificial flies and lures with barbless hooks would be re- quired. On the Vermejo River system on Vermejo Park Ranch, allow, unlimited take of brown, brook and rainbow trout and catch-and-release only for Rio Grande cutthroat trout. No tackle restriction would apply. Allow unlimited take of rainbow, brown and brook trout in Leandro Creek on the Valle Vidal while protecting Rio Grande cutthroat trout with a catch-and-release rule, Current tackle restrictions would re- main. Allow unlimited take of rainbow, brown and brook trout in Black Canyon in the Gila National Forest while protect- in, g native Gila  trout with a catch-and-release rule. Current tackle restrictions would re- main. Reduce the striped bass bag limit to two fish. The limit was increased to three fish dur- ing the drought of 2004 because surveys showed poor overall health of the fish likely due to overpopulation. Elephant Butte Lake's water level has increased and fish health has returned. Re- ducing the bag limit will allow more fish to grow to trophy size. Allow a bag limit of one tiger muskie, minimum size 40 inches, at Bluewater and Quemado Lakes. Surveys in- dicated that non-reproducing tiger muskies are effectively controlling undesirable fish in the lakes and limited trophy take can be allowed. Switch the kids' and all-anglers fishing ponds at Red River. The Village of Red River has noted crowding at the smaller all-angler pond and re- quested that the smaller pond he switched to the kids' pond and that, the larger pond then be desk. ignated" as the all-angler pond. Reduce the bag limit at Goose Lake near.Red River to three fish. The lake is difficult to reach to stock. Reducing take will provide more equitably dis- tribution of fish among anglers. The City of Grants rer quested that the Grants City Pond restriction be changed to allow youths ages 17 and younger to fish in order to pro- vide more angling opportunity. Reduce the length of the Special Trout Water on the Pecos River by approximately V2 mile to make angling rules in the area around the Cowles Kids Pond more consistent and to provide more angling oppor- tunities to families. year i ViSA I Name Lordsburg High School Boys Basketball 2009-2010 Date Opponent Time Thurs. - Sat.
