Lake Huites Mexico Bass Fishing Trips
One and a half hours drive east of El Fuerte and deep into the foothills of the Sierra Madre's, is the new "Mystery Lake of Mexico," Huites, where a lakeside fishing camp for Villa Del Pescador was completed in the summer of 1998. Lake Huites, constructed for irrigation in 1991, was stocked with fast growing aggressive Florida strain hybrid black bass three years ago. The lake has been protected from fishing or netting since the stocking and will be managed as a catch and release bass fishing honey hole.El Fuerte near Lake Huites
The lake covers about 15 thousand acres and is loaded with cover and hungry bass. The Florida hybrids are fast growers and are already reaching 7 pounds. With the management strategy now in place these fish will be pushing 10 pounds this year. By this fall large numbers of 3 pound plus bass will be caught.
For more than two decades, Mexico has been a popular destination for American bass anglers in search of schools of trophy largemouth bass. Unfortunately, many of the once fabled Mexican bass impoundments no longer live up to their legendary reputations - their fisheries having declined as a result of over-harvesting of the - once plentiful - resource and drought conditions that resulted in poor water quality and a decline of baitfish species and bass populations.
In the last four years, however, one lake has emerged that is helping to restore the mystique of Mexican bass fishing once again. The hottest bass lake in the world might be Lake Huites, located on Mexico's West Coast, outside the city of Los Mochis. When at full pool, Huites is a 30,000-acre man-made reservoir that had been initially stocked with Florida strain largemouth bass fingerlings to jump start the fishery. And these bass have taken a liking to the mountainous climate, long growing season and an abundant, protein-rich diet of tilapia and shad and are growing at a rapid rate. When conditions are right, skilled anglers are catching in excess of 75 bass a day and 10 pound plus trophies are being caught with great regularity. The local guides have an intimate knowledge of this deep, clear lake and will take you to prime structures that concentrate Huites’ fantastic bass population.
Lake Huites is a beautiful new remote mountain lake located on Mexico's
west coast. The port of entry city for commercial air travelers is Los Mochis
located in the State of Sinaloa. Lake Huites was stocked in 1994 with Florida
strain black bass and the fish have grown at a phenomenal rate. This explosion
of growth is due to the warm year-round growing season, the clear, pure
mountain waters, the tremendous food base of talapia, threadfin shad, crawfish,
and blue gill perch. Lake Huites' remoteness insures that it will never
receive a great amount of fishing pressure. The lake opened to public fishing
in October 1997.
Hidden among the mountainous landscape of western Mexico, the Lake Huites was initially stocked with Florida-strain largemouth bass. Because of a plentiful food source and a long growing season, the bass on Huites are growing at a rate far exceeding their growth rate in the states. The fish are aggressive and will take an assortment of lures. Catches in excess of 100 bass in a day of fishing have been recorded at this lake.
Lake Huites is located in the foothills of the majestic Sierra Madre mountain
range in the state of Sinaloa near the town of Choix and is one of the most
beautiful and remote in all of Mexico. To make sure this lake becomes the
most famous bass fishery that has ever been opened anywhere in the world,
the Mexican officials overseeing this magnificent fishery have designated
this lake to be the first catch -
The only tough part to any successful fishing trip for me is the travel to the lake and then the trip home. The trip to the lake is difficult because the level of anticipation has you "chomping at the bit" to get your lure in the water. The trip home is difficult because you are pretty well worn out from all the fish you have reeled to the boat. According to the "rules for a successful trip" the above statements couldn't be truer for the trip to Lake Huites, in Choix, Mexico.
The lake is a man-made creation located in the foothills of the Sierra Madres. Very similar to many of our TVA lakes, it consists of a combination of river-like areas, small lake areas, and the setting is magnificent. Most of the time the canyon walls are quite steep right to waters edge and continue the rapid down slope into deep water. There are a lot of points, lots of trees and brush, and fantastic fishing at every turn.
Lake Aguamilpa offers the avid bass angler the best bass fishing action of any lake in Mexico, if not the world, with catches of 30 to 100 bass per day ranging in size from 3 to 10 pounds. The best lake for numbers of bass!!!
