Year round


This 37 acre reservoir is a very popular destination for families in the southern Colorado communities of Pueblo & Canon City. Excellent camping and recreation facilities make for a very pleasant fishing experience. The area is especially good for children wanting to learn how to fish, featuring several open shore areas with easy casting opportunity. Those interested in small stream fishing may want to try the St. Charles River, which feeds and drains the lake. Good fishing can be had both upstream and down, depending on how adventurous you choose to be.
