Colorado is one of the most popular sport-fishing destinations in North America. It offers blue-ribbon trout streams, backcountry jewels, high mountain lakes, easy access parks, and trophy warm-water fisheries. But how do anglers know when and where to fish, how to get there, and what kind of fly, lure, or other gear will reel in the catch? The answers are all here in Fishing Colorado.
The key to successful fishing is finding waters where there are fish. With this guide, local angler, conservationist, and author Ron Baird shares his intimate knowledge of more than 100 lakes, rivers, and streams in Colorado where trout, walleye, bass, and other sport fish swim. This book answers the questions every angler asks before fishing new water.
Look inside to find: site descriptions, including the species present and the best times to fish; tips on lures, flies, bait, tackle, and techniques; information about trails, distances, terrain, availability of campgrounds, river access and regulations; detailed maps and photos.
Whether you're planning an afternoon or a week of angling adventures, take Fishing Colorado along for the trip.
