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]

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie fishing is sometimes at its best with the water temperature down this low. Crappie will be in large schools and follow the large shad schools around in extremely deep water. Find the deepest parts of your lake in old river channels and scan your graph for schooling shad. When you find the school, drop your plastics or live bait down to the bottom of the shad and get ready. Many crappie fishermen will be catching awesome numbers and size of fish this time of year. If you are brave enough to get out on the water this time when the water temperature is this cold, it can really pay off. Be careful out there, remember to boat safely. Never take any chances at these temperatures.

Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they arenít going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.
