​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​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.

here are 6,000 miles of streams and more than 2,000 lakes and reservoirs to choose from. 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.
