Default Marston reservoir question.

I know that it's not open to the public.

but I just want to know why and I wonder if it was EVER open to the public at one point in time? driving by the lake to go to chatfield is like being a fat chick working out at a curves, right next to a coldstone creamery.

I believe it actually is open on a shoreline basis to the folks who live in Bow Mar. I might be thinking of the wrong res, but I thought it was Marston. They hold a private carp tourney, but you have to be invited by a resident. I was invited once, but competitive fishing is definitely not my thing, nor would I want to compete at Carp fishing. It's a gas on a fly rod, but a day of it and I have my fill for a half year or so.

In other words, you have to be privileged just to be able to walk the shore! We don't qualify.

Best regards,
Dogwood

It was one of the lakes used for walleye spawn gill netting. I helped the DOW there one year back in the '90s. I know that it is a Denver Water Dept lake.

That's a different lake.

Yes, I've heard the tales of lore and legend.

The question is, WHY can the public not access the lake, and was it ever open to the public to begin with?

hahah are you guys serious.. It is a denver water compound and is very highly illegal to fish and they will prosecute to their fullest potential. Unfortunatley I no from a few folks who got busted out there. One of whom no longer has the privilege to fish in colorado anymore. Caught 4 times there. Yes there are big fish supposedly and there are no pike. Unless otherwise proved wrong.
