As a service to anglers, Colorado Parks and Wildlife biologists in the Southern Region publish fishing forecasts for waters in their area.
Final Statewide Fishing Report for the Season
With the fishing season starting to wind down, this will be the final fishing report of the season. The report will resume once again in the spring. We'd like to extend a special thank you to all who contributed to the report throughout the 2013 season, and we look forward to hearing from you again! Ice fishing reports will be available on the fishing page once conditions are suitable. – Thank you, from the fishing report crew.
2013 Kokanee Giveaway
Fish hatcheries around the state will be giving away free kokanee salmon during the months of October and November. To receive the fish, a valid fishing license is needed. Because kokanee die when they spawn, the agency would rather see the fish be used than wasted. Giveaways will take place at the following locations:
- Granby at Shadow Mountain (970-725-6200) – If fish available: Nov. 14, 18, 21, 25.
