​​​​This is Colorado's original fishing record program. Fish records are tracked by weight in 43 different species categories. Potential record holders must have a valid Colorado fishing license, or be under the age of 16. The fish in question must be weighed on a state-certified scale, and there must be a weight receipt signed by a person who witnessed the weighing. The fish, not frozen, gutted, or altered in any way, must be examined and identified by a Colorado Parks and Wildlife biologist or wildlife manager before an application is submitted. The biologist or wildlife manager will fill out and return the application form​ to the Sportfish Program Manager in Denver. 

In the interest of promoting conservation of Colorado's fish population, CPW also offers an award program for catch-and-release anglers as well. You can find more information on this program on our Records by Weight​​ page.
