FISHING

You can fish right at the Inn on beautiful 100 acre Lake Mescalero.  A New Mexico fishing license is not required or valid. Just purchase a special day license at the Boat Dock's office or the fitness center located on the second floor of the Inn of the Mountain Gods.  Licenses are available for purchase on February 1st, 2008.   We have stocked the Lake with 20,000 trout this year alone.  The Browns and Rainbows are here for the taking.   The Lake is regularly stocked from the Apache fishery to assure quality catches all year around.  The Inn Boat docks have a great snack and bait shop as well. And we'll even provide fishing equipment rental if you choose to leave your tackle box and pole at home.
