Due to extreme fire danger,
the Carson National Forest is closed indefinitely.
Because Eagle Rock Lake is part of Carson, the Free Fishing Day event, scheduled there for Saturday, June 4, has been canceled. We are all disappointed; but safety first! We hope to see you next year to celebrate New Mexico’s Free Fishing Day!
