Denver Bassmasters Habitat Project at Aurora Reservoir

Posted by nation on May 10, 2014

1._Aurora_Proj.jpgThe Denver Bassmasters (DBM) in partnership with the Colorado Bass Nation (CBN) and Aurora Parks spent Saturday, April 5, 2014 assembling and installing ten large fish habitat structures at Aurora Reservoir. Members installed several structures in close proximity creating reef like habitat that will positively impact the fisheries eco system.

2._Aurora_Proj.jpgDistribution around the reservoir was done with the help of an Aurora Parks Department rental boat, on which a platform was built for easy transportation and deployment. This was the club's fourth habitat project in the last five years and the third with Aurora Parks.

3._Aurora_Proj.jpg As in the 2013 DBM Harriman Reservoir project, MossBack Fish Attractors were used as the habitat structure. Mossback attractors are both eco friendly, being made from reclaimed plastic, and are easy to assemble and install. The tree-like designs provide cover, shade and habitat for small water creatures, plankton, bait fish and sport fish.
