Bowles Reservoir #1 - Jefferson County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: This good-sized lake adjacent to Marston Reservoir is always worth a check when you are in the area. Greater Scaup can be found here just as regularly as on Marston, and large rafts of ducks often contain large numbers of Hooded Mergansers. Even a loon or two has shown up, and sometimes gull flocks from Marston roost here. The county line situation is complicated here--this lake is all in Jefferson County, but Marston and most of the surrounding trees are in Denver County.

Habitat: Reservoir
Directions: From Wadsworth and Bowles, travel north on Wadsworth to Belleview, and take a right. Follow Belleview for a short distance and take your first left onto S. Balsam St. Follow this road as it curves around and becomes W. Grand Ave. The best scanning point for this lake is on the right about 400 yards from S. Balsam.
