The Great Plains Reservoirs, located just south of Eads, Colorado, offers Kiowa County visitors some of the best fishing opportunities to be found anywhere in Colorado. The natural setting of the reservoirs and the mild climate make fish abundant in all of the reservoirs.
The most common species of fish found in Kiowa County's Great Plains Reservoirs include wiper, saugeye, walleye, crappie, channel catfish, largemouth bass, small mouth bass, bullhead, drum, and carp. Fish weighing in excess of five pounds are common. Fish species are similar in all Kiowa County lakes and reservoirs.
Water levels in all lakes are moderate. Visitors need to be alert for Spring and Summer Storms containing high winds.
