Butte General Store and Marine is the only one-stop shop for all your fishing needs in Elephant Butte. We are the ONLY place at the lake that sells minnows! Our General Store provides everything you need to hit the lake and then some. We carry tubes, rafts and other flotation devices year-round (unlike the big box stores, who get one shipment in early summer then sell until they are out).
Typically, people curious about kayaks come in to our shop and view the varied models. What we do is give you a free training on paddling, getting in and out of a kayak and schedule time to provide a personalized demo of a few kayaks out on the lake. With our assistance, after learning about and then experiencing time on the water in some kayaks, people are able to make the right purchasing decision. We pride ourselves in knowing our customers got the perfect model that will maximize their enjoyment and use.
For those not yet ready to actually own a kayak, but want to spend some time kayaking or stand up paddleboarding, we have a rental fleet of single & double kayaks and SUPs at the ready!
Our hours of operation are 10:00am to 6:00pm, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. We are closed Tuesday & Wednesday.
Come by and say “hey” and please let everyone know that Zia Kayak Outfitters welcomes them. Not only is Zia Kayak Outfitters New Mexico’s only fishing kayak dealership, we have many items in inventory never before seen in this area…
