Ralph Price Reservoir
|Feature Article and Photo
by Kevin Kreiman
A relaxing detour, between the Colorado towns of Lyons and Estes Park on highway 36, is the Button Rock Preserve and Ralph Price Reservoir. The manmade reservoir is named after a former mayor of the city of Longmont and is a primary water source for the city. The North Saint Vrain Creek provides fly-fishing opportunities along its 2-mile creek side trail before you reach the reservoir. A special fishing permit from the Longmont clerkís office allows you to fish for splake, brown and rainbow trout.
