Weather & Water Conditions

Weather Water
Temp: 60+ Temp: 32-35

Precip: None Runoff: No 

Colorado Stream Update: Because of the warm weather the Denver-Metro area has received over the past 10 days, it is unsafe to get out and ice fish for the time being.

Current Conditions at Quincy Reservoir:

Quincy is a slushy mess right now as the lake isn't quite iced over but it's not exactly free, open water either. We recommend Chatfield Reservoir for great winter still water fishing close to the Denver area.

The fishing is awful.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 32-35 degrees and Off-Color.
