All trailered vessels must go through an Aquatic Nuisance Species (ANS) inspection prior to launching. The East Ramp will be open for ANS inspections 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. until the end of March with longer established hours for the remainder of the spring and summer boating season. Boaters seeking to launch outside of those hours must obtain a seal from a certified ANS boat inspector and go through the proper pre-Inspection procedure. Always clean, drain, and dry your vessel to help prevent the spread of ANS.
Due to early season conditions, Cherry Creek State Park is asking boaters to keep a lookout for possible floating debris and be aware that unmarked hazards may exist. If debris or hazards are discovered please notify park staff. Before boating, check that the vessel has all of the required safety items on board and plugs are in place.
ST. VRAIN STATE PARK – Blue Heron Reservoir
Even though boat inspections are not required at St. Vrain State Park, boaters should still clean, drain, and dry their vessels to help prevent the spread of aquatic nuisance species.
Gas and diesel-powered motors are allowed on the reservoir, but are restricted to 10 HP or less and must be operated at wake less speeds.
New fishing regulation: All bass under 21” must be returned to the water immediately.
