Shagwa - on June 27th 2015, we experienced a near 100% fish kill at Shagwa. We closed Shagwa to any further fishing and conducted several water tests in July and August of 2015. The early tests showed trace amounts of E.coli, which means sewage was entering the lake, and while not at the level to be a human health hazard it was sufficient to impact the fishery. Fortunately, water quality tests of the source water, and at Hiawatha and Papoose showed no water quality issues. We consulted with Larimer County Health Department and have their support as we work to find the source(s) of contamination.
