[ARCHIVED] Fishing limits suspended at Waneka Lake through the end of the year

Waneka fish limits suspended

Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW), has approved a public fish salvage which suspends bag and possession limits, allowing anglers to enjoy unlimited catches from the lake.

This permission will be in place only during draining efforts and stipulates the following regulations;
•A valid Colorado fishing license is required in accordance with state statutes. Licenses may be purchased online at
•Only legal fishing methods are allowed. The use of dip nets and seines is prohibited in Waneka Lake as well as all other locations in Boulder County.

An outlet valve at Waneka Lake, designed to control the release of water from the reservoir, is scheduled to be replaced by the end of the year. This replacement is normal and necessary preventive maintenance. It is a proactive measure to maximize dam and public safety, and does not pose an imminent threat to surrounding homes. Beginning in September, Waneka Lake will be slowly drained over three to four months to expose an outlet valve and allow for equipment replacement.
