Fishing in Colorado means opportunity and a chance to catch some 35 species of both warm- and cold-water fish. You can fish for the famed rainbow trout in a cool Rocky Mountain stream or troll for walleye on a sunny plains reservoir. And Colorado offers everything in between, too. There are 6,000 miles of streams and more than 2,000 lakes and reservoirs to choose from. And Colorado's 168 miles of Gold Medal streams provide outstanding angling opportunities for large trout. These waters are managed to ensure populations of big fish.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife provides weekly statewide fishing reports, which for
ease of consumption are separated into multiple sections. The Statewide
Conditions section provides conditions by regions and also includes tips for
fishing success. The Stocking Report lists bodies of water where catchable trout
were recently stocked and the Seasonal
Information section provides all of the latest angling news.
wishing to contribute information to the weekly fishing report should submit
their fishing tips or conditions reports to firstname.lastname@example.org. The
deadline for the weekly fishing report is Mondays at 5 p.m.
Some of Colorado's best fishing takes
place in early spring, so get out and drop a line.
