Bass fishing in Mexico is some of the fastest action found anywhere in the world. With its many lakes stocked with fast growing hybrid black bass and very little local fishing pressure Mexico offers the bass angler an angling experience of a lifetime. A year round warm water climate provides the perfect conditions for rapid growth and the finest top water fishing action you've ever experienced almost year round.

Lake Cuchillo

Presa Chuchillo lies midway between Loredo, Texas and Monterrey, Mexico on a newly completed Super Highway, roughly an hours drive from either city.

Monterrey lies at the foot of the northeastern range of the beautiful Sierra Madre Oriental Mountains, which can be seen on the horizon from the lake.

The lake has been stocked with Florida strain Largemouth Bass and was scheduled to open to the public in '96.

As you can see from the photo above, due to a severe drought in that region of Mexico, the lake level is very low. At normal pool the water level would cover the bush in the foreground with around 12' of water. When full the lake will be nearly 80,000 surface acres in size. Currently it is only one fourth that. It will take a large tropical storm to bring the water closer to normal level.

Trips are not being scheduled to the lake now due to the low water condition. Local bass clubs from Monterrey are fishing the lake, however, and reporting great fishing.

Keep checking back with this page because the fishing will be outstanding when the lake is ready for fishing. Except for a few anglers from the Monterrey Bass Club the lake has never been fished.

....Completion Scheduled for October '97
