Had a great day fishing and just chilling out by the water. My kids were actually calm and only loud when they caught a fish!! My wife stayed the afternoon while we went into town. She caught several perch and sun fish.
The views of the surrounding mountains and meadows are awesome. The visitors center is top notch. There are not a lot of activities other than just enjoying the views and picnicking. The abundant prairie dogs are fun to watch.

Put our kayak in at Eagles Nest State Park and paddled across the lake. Fished for numerous hours. Great trout and perch fishing. Highly recommend this lake. Way cooler than where we live in Cerrillos.
Once again Eagle Nest Lake does not disappoint! We fished Saturday morning into the afternoon. For for 6 hours of bank fishing. It was awesome!!!! Started off a bit slow but the action picked up. Almost losing a rod to a wide inch fighting rainbow....lol....More
Bank fishing or off the docks, whatever you want to do. The day started off calm but quickly brewed up some wind and rain. We caught a couple crappies, which was good, but the best part was how beautiful the views were.
