Twin Lake Reservoir near Pingree Park

NOT to be confused with Twin Lakes near Leadville, Twin Lakes Grand Mesa, or any of the other Twin Lakes in the state, LOL.

Fishing had reportedly been slow there for years, but there were definitely trout in there. It's still on all maps as Twin Lake Reservoir...

But it's now basically empty. There are a couple small ponds of water. Both are stagnant, no inflow right now. There is a trickle of outflow from the pond on the downstream side.

I fished them a bit anyway just in case. The water was very shallow, and totally muddy. No signs of life whatsoever. I am confident in saying there are no fish there at all.

It is possible that fish could get in from the upstream side during spring runoff, but this will never be a fishery unless an intentional effort is made.
