I know its a bit early but it just might save someone some problems later. If this has been posted before mods please delete.

Clear Creek Reservoir Closure
Clear Creek Reservoir, a popular lake along the Arkansas River north of Buena Vista and west of Granite, will be closed to all public access Aug. 1 in order to facilitate maintenance work on the dam. The Pueblo Board of Water Works will drain the reservoir to its conservation pool from July to mid-August. The target date for completion is Dec. 15.

Fish are expected to survive in the conservation pool, but stocking will be curtailed. The lake traditionally is among the most productive and dependable reservoirs in the area. It offers fishing for rainbow and cutthroat trout and occasional larger browns. The reservoir also has kokanee salmon and tiger muskies.

Ice fishing generally is good, and the closure should be lifted by the time the reservoir freezes.
