Southeast Region Fishing Forecast for 2009

Southeast Region Fishing Forecast for 2009
With Bonus South Park (upper South Platte) Forecast

Compiled by Division of Wildlife (DOW) aquatic biologists, the Southeast Region Fishing Forecast (pdf) is based on the best information available as of March 2009. Water levels and streams flows, conditions that are not usually under DOW control, can change significantly and can have some affects on access, stocking and fishing. Surface acreages listed are for full lake volume unless otherwise noted.

Beginning in April, readers are encouraged to visit the weekly Statewide Fishing Conditions Report and Stocking Report for the most up-to-date information.

New for 2009: The Division of Wildlife is now providing anglerswith more in-depth fishery information on a number of selected waters throughout the state. Lake and stream information and fishery survey data can be found on the Fishery Water Summaries page.

Important: Control of aquatic nuisance species (ANS) such as New Zealand mudsnails, didymo and other invasive animal and plant species is of critical importance in Colorado. Of particular CLEANED, DRAINED AND DRY. Check out the Clean, Drain and Dry instructions and watch the streaming videos “Don’t Move a Mussel” and “Watercraft Inspection and Decontamination Process.” Your cooperation will help prevent the spread of these organisms that can destroy habitat and fishing.
