Fly Fishing in Colorado means opportunity and a chance to catch over 30 species of both warm and cold-water fish. You can hunt for the fish of a lifetime in a cool Rocky Mountain stream, hike the backcountry and catch fish by the dozens or cast for a bass on a sunny plains reservoir. And Colorado offers everything in between, too. There are 6,000 miles of streams, 14,000 miles counting all headwater streams and more than 2,000 lakes and reservoirs to choose from and Colorado has 168 miles of Gold Medal streams which provide outstanding angling opportunities for large trout. So let's get started!
We've divided Colorado into logical regions for flyfishers. Click on the map above to see the rivers, lakes and streams for that region.
