Dan Noble State Wildlife Area (SWA) with Miramonte Reservoir is located in a rural setting surrounded by mountains that are very attractive to local residents and non-residents alike. People travel from the far corners of Colorado and from out of state to Dan Noble SWA to recreate, especially to catch the trophy Rainbow Trout, with its distinct pink meat, and abundant crayfish during the summer and ice fish in the winter. The SWA also provides strong economic value to local communities (Norwood, Nucla and Naturita).
