Fishing nirvana is owning a 1.3-mile stretch of the Eagle River. It feels worlds away but is outside your door; it's just one of the many benefits and amenities of living at Cordillera. Cordillera is one of the few communities in the West that owns a private piece of the river, allowing property owners access to the Eagle River for year-round, world-class fishing, abundant with large rainbow and brown trout. The river parcel also features viewing benches and walking paths. In addition, Cordillera is home to several stocked and managed ponds: Upper Bearden, Lower Bearden, Red Draw and Grenada Glen complete with a picnic area and dry dock.
(VVA) manages Cordillera’s Fishing Program with its industry-endorsed guides. Educational programs, discounts on equipment and merchandise and a variety guide programs are offered.
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. It is then monitored throughout the summer months.
