Cordillera is one of a few communities in the West owning a piece of private river heaven. This gives Cordillera property owners access to 1.3 miles along the Eagle River for year-round, world-class fishing in pristine water, abundant with large rainbow and brown trout. The river parcel also features viewing benches and walking paths. In addition, Cordillera is home to several beautifully stocked and managed ponds: Upper Bearden, Lower Bearden, Red Draw and Grenada Glen complete with a picnic area.
The fishing ponds are stocked in late spring with native fish recommended by Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
Cordillera Community Operations maintains the ponds and surrounding wetlands. Mosquito control, with special emphasis on mosquito larvae control, is conducted mid-May to early June around the ponds then monitored throughout the summer months.
