Cherry Creek Lake Dam was the first of the three dams to be built to protect the Denver region from catastrophic South Platte River floodwater that plagued the area for more than 100 years. Located at the southeast edge of Denver in Aurora, Colorado, construction of the dam was begun in 1948 and was completed in 1950. Cherry Creek Lake is 1.5 miles long, has 8 miles of shoreline, and has a maximum depth of 26 feet. The lake drains a total area of approximately 385 square miles. The 880-surface acre lake has a storage capacity of 134,470 acre-feet of water. [Cherry Creek Lake. www.nwk.usace.army.mil, 02/05/2008]

Cherry Creek Reservoir Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The full moon is right around the corner. The gravitational pull is starting to increase with the moon and sun being on opposite sides of the planet. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today's solar/lunar peaks. It's always fun trying something new at the peak times to change things up a bit and test out the Lunar Theory each time you hit the water in close to full and full moon situations. Good luck you there.
