Crawford State Park and Sweitzer Lake State Park, two of western Colorado's favorite reservoirs, open April 2.

Crawford Reservoir is now 85 percent full and will continue to fill throughout the spring runoff. Crappie fishing has been very good, and northern pike are actively feeding. Sweitzer State Park is located south of Delta just off Highway 50.

At both reservoirs the aquatic nuisance species inspection station will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.; on May 10 inspection hours change to 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Boaters must be sure that their boats are clean, drained and dried before going to the ANS station. Boaters with a seal are responsible for presenting their receipt.

Boat owners are also reminded to be sure their registration is current; new registration for 2016 is required after March 31. A 2016 fishing license is required on April 1. Boaters must carry the proper number of Coast Guard-approved life jackets and a noise-signal device. Water temperatures in most Colorado reservoirs will remain very cold well into June, so CPW recommends that you wear your life jacket whenever you're on the water.
