Conditions on the Pueblo Tailwater have deteriorated over the past few days. Last week’s storms dropped a total of 3" of rain west of town and the muddy storm water is still working its way through the reservoir. The water from the dam is a milky green color with clarity 12" or less. Today, flows were brought up just over 1,000 cfs which has further reduced water clarity. Until we see an improvement in conditions, we recommend turning your attention of the many great stillwater options in the area. The bass fishing on Pueblo Reservoir is improving and trout fishing at Deweese, Wahatoya, and San Isabel has been steady. If you are willing to drive a little further, North lake sits on the south side of Cuchara Pass and offers a smorgasbord of trout, char and salmon, including tiger trout hybrids. If you are looking for trophy trout than Spinney Mtn Reservoir is always a good bet. The chironomid hatches are getting heavy and if you can find the right depth you will be into some hefty rainbows, cut-bows and possibly a brown or two. Come by the shop and let us know where you are heading. We are always happy to help select a custom assortment of flies to meet your needs. Thanks for checking in and as always.... Tight Lines!

Time to hit the lakes this weekend..... or go kayaking. Flows should be more reflective of inflows by Monday. We are hoping water clarity improves significantly at that time so we can resume walk/wade and/or float trips. Have a safe weekend!
In order to keep you updated on the releases from Pueblo Dam in light of the recent storm, here is the latest: Pueblo Dam has stored approximately 10,000 acre feet of stormwater over the last two days. We started releasing stored stormwater today at 0845. At approximately 0945 the release was 765 cubic feet per second. We plan to increase the release by 500 cubic feet per second every hour, e.g. the relase should go up to approximately 1,265 cubic feet per second at 1045. We will continue to raise the releases 500 cubic feet per second until we reach 3,765 cubic feet per second. Once the stormwater is evacuated from the reservoir, we will return to normal opeartions.

Flows below the dam are expected to rise significantly today and could approach 4,000 CFS. If you were planning on fishing the tailwater today we recommend you try Valco ponds or head out to the reservoir instead.

Hello anglers and all those looking to recreate on the Pueblo Tailwater this weekend. Please see the message below from the folks at BOR. I think the reference to 6,000 cfs could be misinterpreted as an expected flow but I would be very surprised if it gets anywhere near that high although it is a possibility. My understanding is that BOR will not release additional water from the dam if flows anywhere down stream are approaching the critical flood level of 6,000 cfs. Hopefully tomorrow morning we will get some clarification.
Pueblo Dam is currently storing stormwater - 8,000 acre feet so far - to mitigate the high Arkansas river levels below the dam. As the Arkansas River quiets down from the recent storm, water held back from the storm will be released. Upcoming Pueblo Dam releases will be gauged to ensure the Arkansas below the dam doesn't exceed 6,000 cubic feet per second. We expect to begin those releases somtime Friday morning, May 12th.
