The Catch of the Week goes to Jessika Kinn and her first fish ever!

Her father, David, says after landing this trout at Lake Nighthorse, Jessika promptly fell asleep after all the hard work.

​Well done, Jessika!

Fishing Tips of the Week​

Know Before You Go

​Motorboats and sailboats must have an ANS Stamp prior to launching in Colorado waters.

Boat owners are required to purchase the ANS Stamp and operators must retain proof of purchase (electronic or printed receipt) on his or her person, the motorboat or sailboat, when operating the vessel (C.R.S. 33-10.5-104.5). 

  • Motorboats and Sailboats from Colorado - $25.00
    • ​​Colorado residents will purchase the ANS stamp at the time of registration. ​If you register/renew your vessel online or via a registration renewal postcard, the cost of the ANS stamp appears as part of your total amount due. You do NOT need to manually add another $25 to your payment for the ANS stamp.​

    • Residents with motorboats or sailboats documented by the U.S. Coast Guard or otherwise exempt from in-state registration can purchase the ANS stamp online at​, or at any CPW office or sales location​​. ​

​Funding contributes to prevention and management of ANS in the state. Thank you for protecting our waters and contributing to conservation in Colorado!

​To learn more about the ANS Stamp, see our Frequently Asked Questions​. ​​
