Lake: Croke Reservoir

Disrespect and a mess

Post By: J18      Posted: 6/16/2014 9:35:55 PM     Points: 392    
Went to fish at croke this evening for the first time this year cause I have caught some decent bass out of this lake last year well when I arrived there were a lot of people so I started my journey to find a spot there was trash every where worm cans all over the place beer cans and dead fish.also a ton of blue gill remains I normally don't get on here to complain but man if your gonna go enjoy the outdoors leave it cleaner than when you left. Anyways I left about 10 minutes in and went to a lot cleaner place it seems like this is the issue with every lake were you don't have to walk to far to the water

Last pic isn't croke res. it is sad how the lake is treated now. It is still a flies and lures only lake but no enforcement I have sent the police that way a ton since I live 5 houses up from it. Bad part is the city ruined it be for all the trash started fishing it again.

that sucks man, one thing I have been doing a lot is I take pictures from the parking lot when I first get to my spot, and as I walk down I tell all who are fishing in the area that the DOW are taking pictures of the parking lots and are issuing tickets to the people leaving trash around, will have license plate numbers of who are fishing in the area, it seems to help as I have packed out a lot less trash from years before. I fish pueblo a lot and if I catch anyone leaving the area I fish with trash, I know some people where I can findout were your car/vehicle is registered....
