The clean, clear waters of Rifle Gap State Park’s 350-acre reservoir provide some of the best fishing in the area.
The long, narrow reservoir is home to a wide variety of warm and cold-water fish species and is generally open to ice fishing from December through March (temperatures permitting.)
You may check on ice and fishing conditions at the Colorado State Parks Facility located at the park’s entrance.
Anglers catch catfish, largemouth and smallmouth bass, perch, crappie, rainbow trout and northern pike at Harvey Gap. Ice Fishing draws anglers to Harvey Gap in the winter. Before heading to the park, check the current fishing and ice conditions. The reservoir is about 190 surface acres when full.
