Voluntary fishing closure in place at 'toilet-bowl', near Ruedi Reservoir, effective immediately
Water that normally flows from the dam and into the pool, known locally as the 'toilet-bowl', has been re-routed due to the need for dam maintenance. The conditions have left the fish in the pool isolated, vulnerable, and stressed. Maintenance of the dam - owned and operated by the Bureau of Reclamation - could continue through Nov. 10 however, dam operators say it could take longer if additional work is necessary.
This is annual maintenance. Happens once sometimes twice a year.
