Post FISHING CLOSURES FOR HENRY LAKE, MEREDITH RESERVOIR
FISHING CLOSURES FOR HENRY LAKE, MEREDITH RESERVOIR ANNOUNCED

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Due to low water conditions, Colorado Parks and Wildlife has implemented an immediate fishing closure on Henry Lake and Meredith Reservoir in Crowley County.

In June, the agency authorized a public fish salvage at Henry Lake due to impending lake drainage, and in early July, a complete fish kill occurred at Meredith Reservoir. As conditions continued to deteriorate in and around both lakes, public safety and access became a concern, leading to the decision to implement the fishing closure. The Twin Lakes Reservoir and Canal Company, the irrigation company responsible for maintenance, became concerned about public safety, and in discussions between the company, Crowley County, and parks and wildlife, requested that the area be closed to public access.

The administrative closure closes public access to Henry Lake and Meredith Reservoir for fishing, hunting and all other wildlife-related recreation, and it ends immediately all public fish salvage operations at Lake Henry. The lakes will be reopened once they are refilled with water and conditions are determined safe, depending on water availability.
