Fish Explorer is a member-driven fishing resource for Colorado lakes, designed to make it easy for you to find lakes, fish species, maps, and fishing tips and reports. Help us maintain current water temps, water levels, and other elements by submitting lake updates.
The pump to Carter Lake is back on! This will help even out the reservoir water level a little bit. The reservoir is currently at an elevation of about 5727--about 32 vertical feet from the top, or 70% full. Track our reservoir water level on line at: http://www.usbr.gov/gp-bin/arcweb_carterco.pl
Also, releases to the Big Thompson River from Olympus Dam on Lake Estes are scheduled to scale back late tonight, around midnight. Currently, they are around 467 cfs. By tomorrow morning, June 21, flows in the Big T will be around 330 cfs.
Please let me know if you have any related questions. I'll be in the office all day tomorrow.
