Wickstrom: Why fishing at Dillon Reservoir is the best it’s been in years 6.12.2017 Headlines: All Headlines
Dillon Reservoir, a 3,000 acre storage reservoir, is owned and operated by the Denver Water Board. Located adjacent to I-70 near the town of Dillon Colorado, this is one of the most easily accessible mountain reservoirs in the state. Lake Dillon was formed when the Dillon dam was built in 1963 to provide storage for Denver’s water supply. The old town of Dillon was flooded and many of the buildings were moved to the current towns of Dillon and Silverthorne. It took a few years for the reservoir to fill.  By the mid-seventies Lake Dillon became one of Colorado’s premier Brown trout fisheries.  While I have driven by Dillon Reservoir hundreds of times, it has been decades since I fished there.
