No ice fishing at Barker.The water level changes too much and theres no water contact allowed. (no boats or wadding) I'm not trying to be a jerk,but next time try going to the "Find lake/River" part of Fishexplorer and look this info up on your own. Its easy if you try! BTW . . . ."Find lake/river" is the green box right under the "FishExplorer.com" logo in the upper left hand corner of the cover page.

Thanks All! You're not being a jerk at all HP I truly appreciate the help and feel like an idiot now as I do see that information posted right on the home page for Barker Reservoir. Cool to know why they don't allow it though! Thanks again for the help.

cdub2411 . . . .I've seen first hand how a lake can drop 20-30ft over a week and still have an ice cap over the water.(ice cap was 30 ft from the water!) at Green Mtn . . . .we fished there on one weekend and came back the following weekend to find a air bridge over 20ft from the water. We were 100yrds from shore when we found out! Talk about the LONGEST YARDS . . . .it took a week for my poor back side to relax enough to poo . . . . .

cdub2411 . . . . . come to the dark side,We need to talk in private! "firstname.lastname@example.org" BTW . . .I think Barker is a Boulder water supply and that's why there is no water contact. The city of Boulder must divert the water they want before it reachs Boulder,cause they have all kinds of water contact stuff on the creek in town.

I was talking about the rubber duck race,but I can see the "tube hatch" too.Don't they have a tube to work thing too? So,where does the city divert their water?I've seen guys wading the river below Barker dam.
