Wattenburg ponds - Weld County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: There are a few wet spots in the vicinity of the tiny town of Wattenburg. Along CR 6 east of US 85 is a small, grassy-shored and easily-scanned pond. Its companion lake, just to the northeast, can barely be glimpsed from the road. West of Wattenburg, at CR 19 x CR 8, is a decent little lake with potential for geese and ducks, with great visibility from the road. South of there, there is a small but sometimes productive pond on the north side of CR 2 between CR 15 and CR 17. A few cottonwoods shade the spot, attractive to diving ducks and perhaps gulls. Scanning is best done from the circular pullout just to the east. CR 2 is the Adams County line; if you are coming from the south, the pond is between Holly and Quebec.
Habitat: Pond/Lake/Reservoir, Marsh
Elevation:
Directions: Wattenburg is just over a mile west of US-85 on CR 6, 3 miles north of Brighton, and 3.5 miles south of Fort Lupton. The ponds along CR 6 are just under 2 miles east of US-85, on the north side of the road. The ponds along CR 8 can be reached by going west from Wattenburg on CR 6 for 3 miles to CR 19, and taking a right (north) for 1 mile to CR 8. The ponds are just west of this intersection on CR 8.
