Elephant Butte Lake: Fishing was fair to good using crank baits, swim baits, top water lures and spinners for white bass.  Fishing was slow to fair using senkos, creature baits, jerk baits and tubes for largemouth bass and smallmouth bass. Fishing was good using chicken liver, beef liver, homemade dough baits and night crawlers for catfish. The best catfish reports again this week came from anglers fishing at night. We had no reports on other species. The surface water temp ranged from the high 70s to the low 80s
