Our club fished Santa Rosa last year and it was a blast. It will also be our opening tournament for this year, April 19 & 20.
Last year there was no place in Santa Rosa to buy a New Mexico fishing license, recommend you stop in Raton and get one at Walmart.
There are no good maps of the lake that we could find. Look for brush and trees. We also caught a big cooler full of 2#+ crappie while fishing for bass.
Wind can be a big problem...pay attention to the weather.
Watch out for rattle snakes! Our website has some good pictures.
