The City of Longmont offers several fishing locations around the area. A Colorado Parks & Wildlife fishing license is required at all locations. An additional, special permit is required at Ralph Price Reservoir inside Button Rock Preserve.

All fishing is regulated by Colorado Parks & Wildlife. Review their official Fishing Brochure to find details on what you can catch, how much you can keep, etc. The CPW Fishing Brochure offers all the information you'll need to enjoy a day fishing anywhere in beautiful Colorado.

Overview

Button Rock Preserve is located in a quiet river valley about 7 miles west of Lyons, Colorado. Within this walk-in only preserve you will find Longmont and Ralph Price Reservoirs along the North Saint Vrain Creek. Longmont manages this natural watershed and reservoirs to preserve the resource and provide storage for the City's water utility.

The preserve creates a unique experience for visitors, providing opportunities to view wildlife, the natural environment and water management facilities at a close level. Trails within Button Rock Preserve offer scenic views and plenty of exercise for an afternoon outing. These trails also enable anglers to access many back-country fishing locations (license/permit required).

Learn more about activities, amenities and regulations on the complete Button Rock Preserve webpage. If you have additional questions, please contact Parks, Open Space & Trails.

Directions

To get to the preserve from Longmont, travel west on Highway 66 to Lyons. Proceed west on Highway 36 for 4 miles. Turn left at Boulder County Road 80 and continue for 3 miles where you will arrive at a gate across the roadway which restricts vehicle access.
