Enjoy the best information on Ruedi Reservoir boat rentals, jet ski, water sports, and watercraft tour company. This lake is not exactly remote, but this easily accessible scenic water offers a sense of isolation. Surrounded by snow-capped mountains and the thickly forested slopes visitors may find themselves wanting to do little more than sitting back and taking in the view. The abundant recreational opportunities, such as camping, motorized boating, waverunners, water skiiing, wakesurfing, kneeboarding, sailing, tubing, hiking, and four-wheeling.
Ruedi's high elevation water's remain cold throughout the year, resulting in an excellent trout fishery. Anglers can expect to encounter rainbow, brown, and lake trout, as well as kokanee salmon. You can also fish the Frying Pan River which is a world class tail-water fishery below the dam. It sits about 15 miles upstream of the town of Basalt, Colorado, near Aspen. To get here from Glenwood Springs, go south on Highway 82 to Basalt, then east on Highway 105.
