New Mexico Division of wildlife weekly reports
ELEPHANT BUTTE: Striped bass continued to provide the best action for anglers this past week. We had reports of stripers being taken on live bait, top water lures, umbrella rigs, jigs, clouser minnows and deep running crank baits. Striper reports were received from anglers fishing areas from just above Kettle Top to Hospital Canyon. Anglers fishing for stripers also caught a few white bass and catfish. A few anglers managed to find schools of white bass and caught several while using crank baits and top water lures.
