Fishing in Colorado equals opportunities to catch some 35 species of warm-water and cold-water fish. You can fish for a rainbow trout in a cool Rocky Mountain stream or troll for walleye on a sunny plains reservoir. Colorado offers everything in between, too. Choose to fish anywhere in 6,000 miles of streams and more than 1,300 lakes and reservoirs.
Annual fishing licenses are valid March 1 through March 31 (13 months). CPW provides a range of options for anglers from the annual fishing license to the one-day fishing license. Youth under age 16 fish for free. Buy a fishing license today!
