Deweese Reservoir SWA

Deweese Reservoir

Deweese Reservoir is primarily a trout fishery stocked regularly with catchable rainbow trout, but it is also stocked with put-and-grow McConaughy rainbows that have been growing fast and large due to the reduction in the sucker population. 16-20 inch rainbows are not uncommon. The reduction in suckers is attributed to plentiful stocking of tiger muskie, which exist in the lake but not in large numbers. Many tigers are lost down stream during spillover, and make their way down to Pueblo Reservoir. In addition to trout and tiger muskie, Deweese offers the opportunity for catching smallmouth bass, but it is more of a quantity fishery than a quality fishery. Smallmouth catches are typically small to average size. Brook trout and cutthroat trout are available in the lake but are not plentiful. Short sections of Grape Creek above and below the lake are accessible for stream fishing. Besides some vault toilets and a few picnic tables, few other amenities are available at this SWA. The lake is open to boating year-round if conditions allow, and fishing is allowed at all hours.
