Colorado Parks and Wildlife has authorized an emergency fish salvage at Big Eggleston Lake on the Grand Mesa starting Saturday, Aug. 6. The lake is being drained so that repairs can be made to a dam outlet structure.

The salvage order removes all size, possession and bag limits for all species of fish. Anglers are encouraged to harvest all the fish they can. Anglers must possess a 2016 Colorado fishing license and can use only legal methods of take.

Big Eggleston Lake is located about 23 miles northeast of the City of Delta. The lake contains trout.

"As the lake is drained the fish will die, so we want anglers to go up there and use the resource," said John Alves, senior aquatic biologist for CPW's southwest region.

The repairs, being made by the Grand Mesa Water Users Association, are scheduled to be completed in the fall.
