The Colorado Parks and Wildlife (“CPW”) collects aquatic data from both internal sources and a variety of external governmental and non-governmental agencies. CPW provides this data, upon request, solely as a public service. In September 10 to 12, 2019, personnel from the CPW conducted fishery surveys on Bear Creek. The fishery data is graphically summarized as processed by the Association. CPW makes no warranty, representation, or guarantee as to the content, accuracy or completeness of any of the data provided.
Fishery surveys (September) have been done at up to 10 sites in the watershed from 1988-2019, with several missed years due to low flow conditions. Typically 6 stations are sampled in the watershed. In 2019, no data was collected from the Evergreen downtown station (Little Bear) or the Idledale station. The 2019 fishery data (only Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout) is supplied to the BCWA for use in its watershed management program and reporting to the Colorado Water Quality Control Commission as part of the Association annual report. This data may not be re-published without approval of the Association.
