Various diving birds and waterfowl can be seen here during spring and fall migration. COMMON LOON are seen here from time to time. JUNIPER TITMOUSE is common in the mixed woodlands around the lake. At the inlet WHITE-BREASTED NUTHATCH is very reliable.
From Hwy 191 in Monticello, go west on 200 South. After 2 blocks the road Y's--take the left hand road that forks to slightly to the south. This turns into Abajo Drive and goes for about 4 blocks to the edge of town. Here the road turns into North Creek Road. After the last house on the left the next road on the left is South Creek Road, which is .9 miles from Hwy 191 where you started. Turn left on to South Creek Road and follow it to the Reservoir which will be on your left. If you continue along this road you'll eventually hit the inlet, before the road veers sharply to the left.
