MERCURY ADVISORY: The state health department has added two popular southern Colorado reservoirs to the growing list of waters where fish contain elevated mercury levels.

Health officials issued fish-consumption advisories for Trinidad Lake, in Trinidad, and Horseshoe Reservoir, in Lathrop State Park in Huerfano County.

The Trinidad advisory recommends that pregnant or nursing women, or women planning on becoming pregnant, and children 6 and younger, eat no walleyes or saugeyes larger than 18 inches.

A similar advisory at Horseshoe Reservoir includes sauger and smallmouth bass.

Others should eat no more than one meal per month of the 18-inch or longer fish. Details are on the agency's Web site, [log in for link]
