Default GLENWOOD AREA SPRING FISHING CLOSURES

GLENWOOD AREA SPRING FISHING CLOSURES


GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo - The Colorado Division of Wildlife (DOW) is reminding anglers in the Glenwood Springs area that annual spring fishing closures are in effect March 15 through May 15.

These closures are to protect spawning rainbow trout, which congregate at the confluences of several tributaries to the Colorado and Roaring Fork Rivers. The fish behavior gives fishermen an unfair advantage and the DOW places the restrictions to protect fish populations during the spawning period.

These fishing closures, which have been in effect since 2001, are also in place in the fall during the brown trout spawning period.

Closures are for the following areas:

Roaring Fork River: 50 yards upstream and downstream of the confluences with Four Mile Creek and Three Mile Creek, as well as a half-mile up those creeks.

Colorado River: 50 yards upstream and downstream of the confluences with Grizzly Creek, No Name Creek and Canyon Creek, as well as a half-mile up those creeks.

Signs have been placed near the closures and the closures clearly appear in the annual fishing regulations brochure. Violators face a minimum $68 fine for fishing in the closure areas.
