NOTICE: Due to the Chatfield Reallocation construction fishing access from the west side of the park (Swimbeach - Kingfisher) is closed. Please access lake from the east side fo the reservoir. In addition to a healthy population of trout and bass, you’ll find walleye, channel catfish, yellow perch, crappie, bluegill, sunfish and carp.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife periodically stocks the lake with rainbow trout and other fish. Springtime signals the start of open water fishing and the park’s trout fishing is some of the best in the Denver area.
Throughout the summer, walleye, bass, perch, crappie, catfish and an occasional trout are caught, with the best action early and late in the day or at night. Fishing licenses are required, and may be purchased from the park office. Access available at the Handicap Pier and an accessible trail to a Platte River fishing platform.
