John Martin Reservior State Park Boat Ramps Open

Holly Lake PicHASTY, Colo. – John Martin Reservoir will be opening the East and West Boat Ramps for the summer season  March 15. The water levels are similar to last year resulting in plenty of room for people to enjoy fishing, boating and other recreation on the reservoir.

The north shore waterfowl closure will also be lifted March 15 so that visitors will have opportunities to enjoy the remainder of the current seasons. Anglers will find luck with wiper, walleye and catfish on the reservoir and in the stilling basin below John Martin Dam, while bird watchers can still find some bald and golden eagles on the park.

Park visitors need to make sure that all of their licenses and registrations are up to date. Current boat registration, fishing and hunting licenses and annual parks passes for 2015 are all on sale now and can be purchased at the Visitor Center.

Please remember to be safe and responsible while you enjoy the many recreational opportunities we have to offer at John Martin. We look forward to seeing all of you this summer!
