Colorado Parks and Wildlife awarded funds totaling more than $200,000 this summer to six projects to improve angling opportunities around Colorado. The projects are intended to result in new and expanded angler access to the Lake Fork of the Gunnison, Colorado, and Arkansas Rivers, improve in-stream habitat in Boulder Creek and upgrade existing angling facilities in Holyoke and Rio Blanco counties. CPW says the Fishing Is Fun Program is a powerful tool to develop more opportunities for residents and visitors to access that resource, and to leverage angler dollars while doing so. The Rio Blanco Water Conservation District will get $70,000 of the money to construct a pier on Kenney Reservoir. The pier will be in compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act. $30,000 will be used to build a new boat ramp on the Colorado River in Rifle.
