"Perhaps fishing is, for me, only an excuse to be near rivers. If so, I'm glad I thought of it"
Roderick L. Haig-Brown A River Never Sleeps (1946)
Colorado is a stunningly beautiful state with a variety of fishing opportunity. From the flats of the plains, to the valleys of the mountains and beyond, you can find whatever fishing experience you're looking for. We, at Colorado Trout Unlimited, encourage you to go outside and explore all Colorado has to offer. The absolute best way to get started is to first visit one of our partner fly shops. Within them you will find dedicated staff who can advise you on where to go and what to take with you. In addition to outfitting, these shops will also have advice on the right guides to hire, learn to fish classes and more.
You'll find many resources online to help you plan your fishing excursion. The best place to start is with a fishing license!
Water temperatures are warming across Colorado, and most of the US. Be sure to check your local waters before heading out! The trout could use a break.
