Plan your trip to Colorado
Planning your fishing trip in Colorado grants you the opportunity to land one of at least 35 species of both warm- and cold-water fish that inhabit the area including smallmouth bass, brown trout, sunfish, and Snake River cutthroat. Many anglers head to the mountain streams and rivers in search of the renowned rainbow trout. However, with more than 6,000 miles of streams and more than 2,000 lakes and reservoirs to choose from, you should never have a hard time finding your own private “fishing hole”. There are also a number of Colorado resort that offer outfitting services, providing a guide to help you find your own little hot spot.
