Electra Lake is currently open for the 2016 season. Fish, recreate, eat, and enjoy.


Electra Lake is located 25 miles north of Durango, CO. It is an off stream reservoir serving as the primary water storage facility for the Tacoma Project's power generation. Water from Cascade Creek, Little Cascade Creek, and Elbert Creek are diverted through four dams to fill Electra Lake.

Electra Lake is owned and operated by Xcel Energy. In conjunction with Xcel Energy, daily management of recreation is by the Electra Sporting Club, a private club formed in 1910 to help preserve and enjoy the recreation found at Electra Lake.
