Colorado Fishing Towns

Colorado has a lot of water to unpack when considering where you want to go for your next fly fishing adventure. One area that is both easy to access and also provides amazing fishing as well as options to avoid the crowds is the central section of the state. This area expands about an hour or two off of the I-70 corridor and can be as close to Denver as the Deckers/ Eleven Mile Canyon area to about Gypsum. Some key rivers in this area to take a look into include; the Colorado River from Kremmling to Gypsum, the South Platte River from Alma to 11 Mile Canyon, the Arkansas River from Leadville to Salida, the entirety of the Eagle River, as well as a personal favorite, the Blue River from Breckenridge to Kremmling. For those who most enjoy stillwater options, take a look at Mohawk Lakes near Breckenridge, Lake Dillon in Summit County, Green Mountain Reservoir in Heeney, the Williams Fork for ESOX, and Antero and Spinney Reservoirs in the South Platte River System. All of these waters will fish very well throughout the open water season and will provide you with nearly a dozen different species to key in on.
