COLORADO: Arvada Reservoir – Nice Catches of Rainbow, Smallmouth and Catfish

Fishing remains good from the shore and from boats.

We have had some nice catches of rainbow, smallmouth and catfish.  The lake was stocked again on April 23 with 5,700 10-12 inch rainbows.  If you don’t mind about a mile walk, fishing is very good on the north shore as it is not hit as hard.  Just a reminder, no water craft are permitted in the reservoir that allows any body contact with the water, such as belly boats and open bottomed rafts. Please note that the lake will be closed on June 9 until 1:30 p.m. to allow for our Annual Kids Fishing Contest. Hey kids, have mom or dad stop by the reservoir to pick up your registration form for the annual fishing contest.  We have divisions in different age groups so all have a chance at winning some great prizes. And don’t forget the free hotdogs. More in our next report but registration forms are now available at the ranger station at Arvada Reservoir.
