The smoke is clearing and Highway 24 reopened on Sunday, July 1, giving access to our closest fishing spots. Elevenmile Canyon and Deckers are only a short drive up Ute Pass, but why not consider heading further west and fishing the Blue or Cottonwood Creek? Pikes Peak Highway is open giving you access to all the Catamount Reservoirs. Outside of Rampart Reservoir and Nichols Reservoir, which are closed, all of our fishing opportunities are now open! Please be careful as you head up the Pass, though, since forest service and fire fighters' vehicles will be entering and exiting the highway between the Springs and Woodland Park.
