Beaver Reservoir Fills-Up

Saturday when we drove to Creede to see the colors, we also drove up to Beaver Reservoir to see what progress had been made in repair/rebuilding the dam.  I’m posting some photos for those of you who are familiar with this area and are curious.

This is what we saw….real progress.  Can you see the tractor down in the bottom digging away?

Jim took a closer look at the edge and said he saw a lot of concrete forms so it looks like they may be putting barriers long the bottom.

Here are some more photos. The water is filling the reservoir with the part closest to the dam really filling up.  Water is accumulating about half way up the reservoir with the southern part still just a trickle.

Posted signs say the project is to be finished January 2015, but it will take a whole lot longer to completely fill the reservoir and be ready for fishing.

Remember, you are loved.

  3. My comment didn't make it in here so maybe I just messed it up but wanted to say I appreciate the pics of Beaver. So nice to see what is happening. Been fishing there for over 20 years and have now missed out on a few years so I love seeing the pics. Thanks!
