South Catamount Reservoir

South Catamount Reservoir is located just a 5 minute drive up Pikes Peak highway below North Catamount Reservoir. It is basically the same still water fishery as "North Cat" only with slightly less strict regulations because bait fishing is allowed. These reservoirs are the Colorado Springs city water supply with relatively little access to commodities such as restrooms, camp sites and boat ramps. Flies to come armed with are streamers, such as a brown and black wooly bugger, egg patterns, copper johns, hares ears, and prince nymphs. Tell the people working the gate that you are going fishing so you don't pay the higher fee to go to the top of Pikes Peak.

 

Hours of operation are as follows:

May 1 – Thursday before Memorial Day:  9:00am – 4:00pm

Friday before Memorial Day - Labor Day: 7:30am – 7:00pm

Tuesday after Labor Day - Sept 30: 7:30am – 6:00pm

Oct 1 – Third Sunday of October: 9:00am – 4:00pm

In addition, the Recreation Area is closed to fishing during the Pikes Peak Hill Climb Race 

 

"Catamount reservoirs-
Another Stillwater option, when these lakes open there is abundant opportunity on the fly. North catamount in particular, holds some very nice lake trout that can be taken cruising the shoreline. Slow stripping streamers is my favorite method to fish here. Don’t overlook the dry fly opportunity throughout the summer as well." Jon Easdon, Guide and Director of Services
