About Lake Dillon

Dillon Reservoir, often known as Lake Dillon, is a huge freshwater reservoir in Summit County, Colorado, United States. Lake Dillon was formed when the Dillon Reservoir Dam was built in 1963 to provide storage for Denver’s water supply. The old town of Dillon would be flooded and many of the buildings were moved to the current towns of Dillon and Silverthorne. It took a few years for the reservoir to fill up and by the mid-seventies Lake Dillon became one of Colorado’s premier Brown trout fisheries. Lake Dillon is a great place to go fishing in the summer or winter. Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Kokanee Salmon, and Arctic Char can all be found in the lake.

It is bordered by the cities of Frisco, Silverthorne, and Dillon and is located south of I-70. It is a reservoir for the city of Denver, with Denver Water in charge of its waters. Copper Mountain, Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, and Breckenridge are within a short drive from the reservoir.

Dr. Lindsay Regali caught the new Colorado state record fish during a guided fishing excursion with Alpine Fishing Adventures in November 2017.  This arctic char measured 23.5 inches and weighed 4.15 pounds.

Lake Dillon is one of the only places in the lower 48 states that is home to the arctic char and is a cold-water fish in the family Salmonidae (closely related to both trout and salmon), native to alpine lakes and arctic and subarctic coastal waters.

Check out some of the arctic char our clients are getting into on Alpine Fishing Adventures’ guided excursions.
