Parks, Wildlife provides report to assist anglers

Each week, Colorado Parks and Wildlife puts out a statewide fishing report to help make sure anglers are successful.

The report includes current conditions and tips for fishing success. CPW also releases a stocking report that lists bodies of water where catchable trout recently have been released.

“This is a free service we provide to help encourage people to get out and fish Colorado’s many great waters,” said Doug Krieger, a senior aquatic biologist for Colorado Parks and Wildlife in Colorado Springs.

Colorado boasts 6,000 miles of streams and more than 2,000 lakes and reservoirs. Colorado also has 322 miles of Gold Medal waters for a chance to reel in a trophy class trout.

The fishing report can be found at, and the stocking report can be found at
