Will fishing be included at the reservoir?

2019:  Parker Water & Sanitation District is in the 5th year of a "water quality" fish stocking program, and right now have millions of various size fish creating the base for future fish (e.g., Catfish, Bluegill, Largemouth Bass).   

In the fall of 2018, the Recreation Authority introduced "recreational" fish into the reservoir for the first time (e.g. Walleye).   As this is a new body of water, natural habitat, such as foliage continue to develop as land is inundated with water.

A fish population study will be conducted in June 2019 to assess the success of the various fish species in the reservoir, then stocking will continue in the fall based on the findings.  

So.... YES, fishing opportunities will be in the future at Rueter-Hess!
