Now that the weather is just warm enough, isn't it time to go fishing?

I love to fish, even when I don't catch anything. The relaxation that comes with throwing out your line and waiting for the fish to bite can't be replaced.

So let's find a few spots to go fishing in Western Colorado.

Blue Mesa Reservoir

With so much shoreline you can put a little distance between yourself and other fishermen and cast your cares away. Expect to find all types of trout and a great time. Some of the best fishing in the state is found here.

Animas River

Another great spot. If you like to land big trout, this is your spot. Anglers do very well here. Find a few of those "hard to get to" spots and be amazed at the size of the fish you will find!

Grand Mesa Lakes

Head up to the Grand Mesa for some exceptional fishing. There are a number of lakes on the Grand Mesa that will have you losing track of time because of how much fun you're having.

Bighorn Sheep Canyon

If you love to be surrounded by beauty as well as catch a lot of fish, and some possibilities for a true trophy fish, you have to fish the Arkansas River.  Whether an angler or not, you will find some amazing times here.
