EAGLE NEST, N.M. (AP) - Ice fishing has opened at Eagle Nest Lake in northern New Mexico.
    
The Game and Fish Department and State Parks Division started allowing anglers on the lake Saturday after determining that the ice was safe for foot traffic.
    
However, snowmobiles and other vehicles are prohibited from being on the ice.
    
State officials urged anglers to stay away from any open water and cautioned that the 2,200-acre lake could close if ice conditions become unsafe.
    
The lake is about 30 miles east of Taos.
