TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES, N.M. (KRQE) – Good news is coming for New Mexico anglers.
Elephant Butte Lake will soon be stocked with 20,000 bass. The community raised $21,000 to buy the three to four inch bass from a private hatchery.
The fish will be placed in the lake tomorrow along with discarded Christmas trees and other items that will help provide a good habitat for the fish.
Officials hope the fish will boost tourism and improve the Butte’s reputation.
