Isleta Lakes is one of Albuquerque’s secret treasures.

Enjoy year-round fishing and outdoor fun and relaxation only minutes away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Albuquerque. While only minutes away from city life, you’ll feel transported to another world as you take in the scenic beauty of New Mexico along the banks of the Rio Grande. We have two fully-stocked lakes filled with Rainbow Trout in the winter and Channel Catfish in the warmer months. Enjoy hassle free fishing, long nature walks, picnics and pure relaxation. Make Isleta Lakes your next family outing or quiet retreat, and enjoy outdoor entertainment on another level.
