Scofield Reservoir Reopens to Boaters and Anglers
SCOFIELD RESERVOIR (DEQ)- Scofield Reservoir is now open to boating and fishing.
Tests indicate that algae and toxins have decreased sufficiently to not post a threat to on-the-water recreation. However, we caution against recreational activities that require immersion in the water such as swimming or waterskiing. Toxin levels immediately below the dam have also decreased and fishing is safe in those waters.
Fish should be cleaned with fresh potable water. Animals should stay out of the water. Scofield water will still be monitored for algae and potentially harmful toxins.

For concerns about possible exposure to animals; contact your local veterinarian.
