The road to the lake, boat ramp and camping at the reservoir are all open. Some mornings it has been very smoky on the water. This week we've been seeing Lakers hanging anywhere from 45-110' of water

so the fire is not going to kill all the fish in the lake ? i read a CWP report that the lake was going to suffer a 100% fish loss . i posted to the forum and the moderators must have removed it . it was a sentence in a news article on the fire .

The fire is clear up at/past the head waters of the Williams Fork River, quite a ways away. Very few kokanee in the lake anymore. Gill lice issues and the Lakers eat a lot as well. CPW is discontinuing stocking rainbows and kokanee in it starting this year to kill off the gill lice. It should be around 5 years before they start stocking it again. On the flip side, they were supposed to start sticking Green Mountain res this year. It'll take 3-4 years for the kokes to get established, if the Lakers don't eat them all. If you want lakers Williams Fork is good. If you want Kokes, go to Wolford.
