NOTICE TO ANGLERS:
We stocked Townsend Reservoir with over 700 pounds of rainbow trout on June 11, 2013. We cannot stock Haymes or Womack for the remainder of the summer due to pH level and low water depth. If we have a significant rain event that raises the water levels enough to stock fish in Haymes and/or Womack we will post it here on iSportsman.
PINON CANYON IS CLOSED ON WEEKENDS BEGINNING 11-MAY-2013. Gate hours are 06:00 to 17:00 Monday-Friday. Fort Carson has some areas open on 1-2 June 2013, see Open Areas for details. No Range Control Recreation Safety Brief on 3 July 2013.

NOTICE To Hunters
All persons getting a downrange pass should be familiar with
map reading and land navigation
prior to accessing downrange areas.
Getting To Pinon Canyon
The Pinon Canyon gate is located at mile marker 24, about 30 miles north of Trinidad and 45 miles south of La Junta on US Highway 350. The installation is 30-45 miles from the nearest store or gas, so plan accordingly.
Anglers, Dog Trainers, & Birders
Please ignore the
"your permit is automatically put on administrator hold"
when purchasing a permit as
this only applies if you
are accessing areas other than our stocked lakes and
need a downrange pass
If you plan only to fish in our stocked lakes or enter the Bird Farm and the WDA for dog training (without caps/blanks) or other recreational pursuits, you don't need to attend the downrange safety briefing.
You can enter these areas without a downrange pass, but you still need a Fort Carson recreation permit to fish. Even if your permit is free, you must still get a permit.
If you plan to go downrange or training dogs with caps/blanks, we must know that you attended the Range Control downrange safety briefing.
We Want Your Photos
Sooner or later we will have photo gallery.
to send us your wildlife photographs or to get additional information. For all of you that submitted phots of your hunt, thank you and we will get them online in a few weeks.
If you purchased a permit
attending the safety briefing, you must contact us to have your permit activated. You cannot get a downrange pass unless your permit is activated.
Checking Out at the Kiosk
You must check out at the kiosk when leaving Fort Carson or Pinon Canyon. If you cannot checkout, then turn in your pass at Range Control.
