TERERRO, N.M. (AP) - The New Mexico Game and Fish Department will be opening two popular recreation sites in Pecos Canyon following last year’s wildfires.

The Bert Clancy and Tererro fishing and recreation areas along state highway 63 have been closed since last summer. They will open to anglers and wildlife viewers April 18.

Officials say anyone accessing these areas must have a valid hunting, fishing or trapping license or a Gaining Access into Nature permit. Visitors also must purchase a $4 Habitat Management & Access Validation.

Workers began stocking rainbow trout in the Pecos River and its tributaries this week.

The department also plans to stock other areas of the river throughout the summer, and will stock the Bert Clancy and Tererro wildlife management areas after they are opened to the public.
