Boats on a waterway

Local waterways may have specific equipment and operational restrictions in addition to those covered in this chapter. On Heron Lake, Santa Cruz, and Cochiti Lake, for example, motorized boating is limited to no-wake operation only. Be sure to check for local regulations before you go boating. Go to www.nmparks.com and click on “Boating” and then “Boating Waters” for specific restrictions by lake.
