Truth or Consequenses

Anyone ever visit Truth or Consequences? Fun lake (Elephant butte) and I used to live there when I was young.

Very cool lake! I do a lot of fishing there. I do not know how long it has been since you have been, but the water levels have dropped quite considerably. I believe the lake is only 25 percent full! The water does not even reach the butte anymore. Non the less it is such a massive lake, there is still plenty to do.


Im actually from El Paso TX, about 2 hours south.

Love that lake, I grew up going there every weekend. The water level has dropped ALOT. I don't think we'll ever see it up to the level it once was

I have a 30' CArver Aft cabin I kept at MArina Del Sur until this year. I had to pull it out because of the expense.

The same guy bought all three marinas and then the moorage fees sky rocketed.

I spent many a night on the lake.

Elephant Butte use to be a huge lake, the level has changed so much

I remember fishing there as a kid. I just recently did some Walleye fishing on the Rio Grande by Caballo. Caught a decent sized fish. I didn't know the Rio grande even had walleye in it.

Even though the lake level has been low for quite a few years, don't let that make you think its small. It is still a pretty big lake.

Elephant Butte lake is almost big enough to go canoeing in.

I'm from Michigan. A 'big' lake is relative.

Highly recommend you eat at Los Arcos steakhouse.
Very very good stakehouse, rated highly.

They're open for dinner hours only, and are priced pretty well for a high end steakhouse.

I love the green chile chicken chowder, and the ribs are tender, fall off the bone, and the sauce is sweet, with a hint of orange.
