NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – A program that started in January to promote trout fishing in New Mexico already has its first hall of fame member. Nicolas Villescas was recognized by the New Mexico Game and Fish for completing the ‘New Mexico Trout Challenge.’

The challenge involved catching each of the five types of trout native to New Mexico. Once a person uploads their proof to an app, they are given an award and placed into the hall of fame.
