Google mapped every reservoir I could find from Boulder north to WY border and from I-25 to Granby. Even tried roads, town, lakes etc named Contrary and Saint.

Guess I need another hint.

"Quite contrary" was the clue. Saint may be a distraction. help?

also, Dusty_Bottoms can't get there - he's busy doing something else!

Nope. It's about 35 miles North of Barker Meadow Reservoir.

I figured the fact that this one's got a hydro power plant would make it easier to find. Try to include that if you're looking around online for info?

Yeah, I get that, that's why I used it in my Google searches.

Nope, more Dam reservoirs north of Denver than the friggin 10,000 lakes in Minnesota. Plus the Google map detail is weak if it's not along a major road.

OK, that makes sense with the first clue.

No, don't think so. I am about 99.9% sure that I have located it. Friday may work for me if someone else does not grab it before then.

Previous Clues:
About 35 miles north of Barker Reservoir in Nederland (that is the additional clue I needed to find it) Google Maps is your friend
Quite Contrary (think nursery rhymes)
Hydroelectric power plant - Google is your friend
