Sad that fun days on the water can turn deadly in an instant. Not knowing what caused this accident however you have to watch all the cross currents due to all the boat activity. Also due to low water levels watch for hazards that are not marked or not easily seen due to the choppy water. Hopefully there will be no more accidents.

My fishing bud & I fished Pueblo Wed- Fri last week. We were in view of the the emergency personel & their recovery efforts. Word we got was that the young lady was swimming/diving in an area with very heavy milfoil weed. Became tangled & drowned in a short period of time. The area is off the dam on the NE side. Very popular area because you can drive down to the shoreline. Very sad. The Res is coming down and some of the flats & rock are appearing. Can't stress the importance of knowing the body of water you're on though....
I boated Pueblo 3 times - once on someone else's boat and twice my boat. People are unsafe idiots there. I just changed to Trinidad and loved it. Both fishermen and pleasure boaters generally safe and respectful. There are a fair bit of hazards but when you're boating responsibly, far less chance of problems.
