Quincy Reservoir

Quincy Reservoir Update
Quincy Reservoir will be closed to all body contact water activities until further notice, due to extreme elevated levels of Blue-Green algae.  Body contact water activities include paddleboarding, wading, drinking and tubing. Quincy Reservoir is still open for trail use, fishing and boating.  Those wishing to bring their boat into the water are advised to wear waders and to avoid body contact with the water.

Like any untreated, natural body of water, elevated levels of potentially toxic algae can occur. Normal activities can occur again once sampling shows that algae have normalized to a safe level.

Please note that Quincy Reservoir is not currently being used as a source of drinking water.

The city of Aurora offers a variety of amenities to help you keep cool during the summer. Please visit to learn more about other great spots around the city to enjoy including pools and spraygrounds.

Quincy Reservoir boasts 160 acres of water surface that is well known by metro anglers for trout, largemouth bass, perch and crappie. In March through October, fishing is allowed with artificial flies and lures only. This provides a different, challenging experience for anglers, while also reducing fish mortality rates and allowing better management of this unique resource.

Explore Quincy's shoreline along the 3.5 mile soft surface trail, perfect for viewing wildlife and waterfowl. A picnic table, boat launch and boat rental, and an accessible fishing dock are available for your enjoyment.

Water fluctuations are common and variable from season to season and year to year. Special rules and regulations are in place to protect this unique resource. Dogs and pets are prohibited.
