Re: *Tiny Bubbles to zap algae, aid fish at Cherry Creek Reservoir*

Aeration can change the entire dynamics of the lake. Not only can it help remove the unwanted algae but it will help make the entire water column aerated even in the dog days of summer. Fish maybe found deeper under the thermocline because of increased O2 levels that are not generally found in deeper water in lakes that are not aerated. The mixing that is occurs from aeration may also result in a less defined thermocline and a more gradual temperature change.

Aeration will also make changes in turnover. There will be less impact from fall and spring turnover since the water column is better aerated and the mixing occuring.

Fishing patterns will change, it will take time to adapt to the changes. hopefully it will increase the numbers of fish in the lake.

Also expect more recreationa boaters (read skiers and pwc). Cleaner water attracts more people.

All in all I am looking forward to the aeration. It should prove interesting. I am glad they will turn it off in the winter. hopefully there will be a good ice cap.

I am with the Marble Man...I didnt fish Creek for years because it was the most litter strewn lake in the Metro area...but I am excited for the "trail"...it will mean I have a lot less of a chance to break my neck out there in the middle of the night on those little rocks that move!

Re: *Tiny Bubbles to zap algae, aid fish at Cherry Creek Reservoir*

I know someone that has worked the nets and they have seen "eyes" at twenty pounds. Not too far from the present record of twenty two and eleven. We have other impoundments in the metro area that could eclipse the record also some day. Will anyone ever catch the trophy fish is the question. Could happen to anyone by accident at anytime. I can see it now, a plethora of boats trolling and hovering over the bubbles. What I do like is the trail that will go across the riprap making this area safely accesible from shore. What I do not like is all of the garbage that will be left by the anglers that do not pack out the trash they bring. Cherry Creek is trashed out all around the shore where fisherman leave their ....... anyway this undertaking should improve this fishery!

The aeration lines at Quincy are the prime areas that I troll. I have caught a
lot of trout with that method. Must be something to it!

World Record??

Have you worked the nets at CC in the last couple of years?

Great example of optimism, but there are several good bodies of water that could give the current record a run for its money.

Here is the article, and yes the "creek" is the premier walleye fishery in Colorado! I still believe the world record "eye" resides here! Perhaps A-town and Chatty also. We do have superb "eye" fishing in the Metro area!!
