Default ANTERO, TARRYALL AND WILLIAMS FORK TO CLOSE TO TRAILERED BOAT USE

ANTERO, TARRYALL AND WILLIAMS FORK TO CLOSE TO TRAILERED BOAT USE

The Colorado Division of Wildlife (DOW) and Denver Water will close Williams Fork Reservoir on October 31st, and Antero Reservoir on November 26th to trailered boats for the remainder of the 2008 season. The DOW will close Tarryall Reservoir to trailered boat use on October 31, 2008. Hand-launched vessels can continue to use all waters.

Ice-on at these reservoirs is anticipated to begin in late October through November. The reservoirs will re-open to boating again next spring.

Earlier this summer, the DOW proactively implemented mandatory boat inspections at Antero, Tarryall and Williams Fork Reservoirs. Recent sampling at Antero Reservoir and Williams Fork Reservoir did not find evidence of zebra or quagga mussels. A recent sample taken at Tarryall Reservoir confirmed the presence of quagga mussel larvae.

Public awareness and participation is the best weapon in the containment of invasive species. Invasive mussels endanger water quality and natural resources. Boaters are reminded to take the simple precaution of making sure that they Clean, Drain, and Dry their boat before entering and when they leave any lake or reservoir. All boaters should remember to follow these steps to ensure they are not spreading the mussels to clean waters:

CLEAN the hull of the vessel.

DRAIN the water from the vessel, live well and the lower unit of the engine.

DRY the vessel, fishing gear and other equipment.

INSPECT all exposed surfaces.

REMOVE all plant and animal material.

Kinda sucks, but at least you can still use a boat. It sucks but it's acceptable, unlike a boat or float craft ban.
