General project questions can be directed to email@example.com or by calling 303-628-6348. Gross Reservoir will open for on-water recreation from the Friday before Memorial Day through Sept 30.
Anglers should take precautions and safety equipment before ice fishing. At least four inches of ice is the recommended depth safe for a person to walk upon. Anglers can drill test holes to judge the thickness and character of the ice. Tips for assembling an ice fishing safety kit can be found on the CPW website.
