Default South Platte North of Denver

I live pretty close to the south platte (where it runs under E470) and was wondering if anyone knows the condition of the water/fish since the spillage? It would be awesome if I could just drive a few miles and fish instead of heading up to boulder canyon in the afternoons after work.

When I stopped by there a few months back they had signs posted telling people not to intertube/swim in the water because of the benzene but havnt found anything online saying if its still that way (I'm guessing it is).

Sorry, I can't help you with the condition... this is the first I've heard of it considering I'm about 60 miles north. But I was bummed to read about it when I dug a little deeper. Hopefully, it is getting better.
