Read Before Fishing
Due to high water temperatures, low flows, and reduced oxygen in the
water, fish in the river are under extreme stress. Additional stress from
fishing, catching, handling, releasing, and wading may result in the onset
of disease and/or fish mortality.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) is seeking
your cooperation in a voluntary
ALL DAY FISHING CLOSURE
STATE BRIDGE (Hwy 131) to RIFLE (Hwy 13)
beginning July 20, 2022
Please fish at higher elevation lakes and streams or in other
regions where environmental factors are much less severe.
If stressful conditions persist or compliance with the closure does not
occur, CPW can implement a mandatory fishing closure to protect the
fishery resource. Closures will change following a period of recovery for
the fishery and sustained environmental improvements.
DO YOUR PART!
Curtailing your fishing will help preserve and protect our fishery
for the long term – not just this summer!
