Colorado club adds habitat to Quincy Reservoir

DENVER — Members of the Denver Bassmasters helped restore the habitat on Colorado's Quincy Reservoir.

Volunteers added existing brush and trees, as well as 22 1/2 gallon buckets filled with cement and irrigation tubing and PVC pipe, to the reservoir at winter/early spring low water levels.

"Within two weeks, fish were using structures," said Tom Grace, "and the structures were holding small baitfish and fry."

The 17 volunteers contributed 125 man-hours to the project. They raised $600 and covered 160 acres.
