CPW press release
BRIGHTON, Colo.-- Colorado Parks and Wildlife is ending the public fish salvage at Barr Lake State Park beginning immediately. Irrigation demands have decreased since the August 30 salvage was requested and anglers should follow the normal regulations:

- A valid Colorado fishing license is required in accordance with state statutes.

- A state parks pass is required ($7 Daily Pass or $70 Annual Pass).

- All legal fishing methods are allowed.

- Minimum size for walleye and saugeye is 15 inches long

- Only one walleye or saugeye in the aggregate longer than 21 inches may be taken per day

With the recent rain fall and Barr Lake filling from the South Platte River the boat ramp has reopened for boating again on the north side and is ideal for non-motorized activities, such as sailing, kayaking, canoeing and 10 horsepower or less motorboats.

All trailered boats are required to submit to an aquatic nuisance species (ANS) inspection prior to launch. Inspection hours are 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday to Sunday or by appointment. Colorado Parks and Wildlife manages 42 state parks, more than 300 state wildlife areas, all of Colorado's wildlife, and a variety of outdoor recreation. For more information go to
