Colorado is home to multiple world-class trout fisheries.
Have a look at this great fly fishing video from Colorado Parks and Wildlife that gives great fishing locations, tips, and even what flies to use.
All this is set in some of the most beautiful and sweeping landscapes in the state. If you are lucky enough to live near this trout heaven you have the opportunity to do some serious fly casting, not only in the summer months, but also the winter in some of the most exceptional tailwaters in the west. It even highlights a river reclamation project that demonstrates how a river can be restored to an excellent trout fishery.
As an eastern fly fishing enthusiast of near two decades, I’m envious of the sportsperson who can access this type of world-class trout fishery, even in the winter months.
You are fishing historical waters when you get your waders wet in rivers such as the famous South Platte. Don’t hang up that fly gear, get out and get some fishing done this winter, just layer up and come prepared. Good luck and tight lines.
