Emergency Public Fish Salvage at Henry Lake

Colorado Parks and Wildlife Wide Logo

COLORADO SPRINGS — Colorado Parks and Wildlife has authorized a public fish salvage beginning June 1 at Henry Lake, northeast of Ordway in Crowley County. The salvage was authorized because the lake is being drained and loss of fish is imminent.

The public salvage will continue until the lake is dry or conditions are unsuitable for public access. The shoreline around the lake is soft and muddy so anglers should use extreme caution.

The public salvage is being announced in order to optimize use of the fishery resource as outlined:

  • Anglers must have a valid Colorado fishing license, except during the Free Fishing Weekend on June 1 and 2.
  • Fishing is restricted to daylight hours only.
  • Fish may be taken by any method other than electricity, poisons, firearms or explosives.
  • Bag and possession limits have been suspended.

Signs will be posted at the entrance to the reservoir to alert the public during the time of emergency salvage. The end date of the public salvage will be announced by Area Wildlife Manager.
