Default Old Highway 96 access to Pueblo Reservoir

Found out there is a new gate that blocks access to the water. I used to be able to park about a hundred yards from the lake and fish from shore, launch a canoe or mess around in a float tube.
New gate blocks access to the lake by close to 3/4 mile or more.
Most of the parking areas along the dirt road along South Side are now blocked off. This will make the fall Dove and Waterfowl hunting a pain for access. Let alone shore fishing.
I have written the DOW/Parks for renewed access. Hope others consider contacting them.

No. Its the old highway that was flooded when the lake was formed. It goes to what many call Peck Cove.

I ran into (not literally) that gate about 4 weeks ago when I tried to launch the yak from the old road. Not sure why they are doing that but it will make dove hunting better...no road hunters. Those who want to hunt it will have to walk.

That's crappy as hell, that was a hidden gem of a spot to park and fish.
