The Arvada/Blunn Reservoir serves as an important water source for the City of Arvada, supplying the City with 25% of its drinking water. For this reason, all sports such as windsurfing, swimming, water skiing, tubing and scuba diving, which require body contact with the water, are not allowed. Because of the relatively small size of the reservoir and for water quality reasons, gas-powered boats and belly boats are also prohibited. However, electric trolling motors are permitted. Any person who fishes must possess a valid Colorado fishing license. The reservoir is stocked by the Colorado Division of Wildlife with rainbow trout, brown trout, largemouth bass, and walleye. You may take the state limit on all fish except the trout, which is limited to two per licensed fisherman.The reservoir, located east of Highway 93 and 64th Parkway, is open from April 1 to October 31 each year.
