Highline Lake now open to boating
After a weather delay, Highline Lake State Park is now open to all boaters, jet skiers, water skiers, and wake boarders.
As part of the statewide fight to curb the spread of aquatic nuisance species, including zebra and quagga mussels, all vessels entering and leaving Highline Lake will be inspected for nuisance species. If any are detected on any watercraft, decontamination is required.
Boaters are encouraged to clean, drain and dry their vessel, including removing the plug to drain the water, prior to entering the park and as soon as the watercraft has left the water. Boaters can receive an ANS inspection seal immediately upon leaving the water. This inspection seal saves time on the next launch.
Also, catchable rainbow trout have been delivered to Mack Mesa Lake.
Highline Lake State Park is approximately 10 miles northwest of Fruita. Take Interstate 70 to the Loma exit, right on Colorado Highway 139 to Q Road, then follow the signs to the park.
