​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Colorado Fishing​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

​​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 1,300 lakes and reservoir​s to choose from. 

An annual license is good April 1, 2017 through March 31, 2018. CPW provides a range of options for anglers from the annual fishing license to the one-day fishing license. ​Youth under age 16 can fish for free.​ Buy a fishing license today​!​​​​​ ​​​​ 

CPW provides opportunities throughout the season to learn how to fish. For upcoming clinics, check the calendar​.​​​
