Revamped fishing brochure is a catch

The Colorado Division of Wildlife is making a splash with a complete overhaul of the annual Colorado Fishing brochure. The redesigned brochure features full-color graphics and detailed watershed maps that indicate where anglers can access some of the state’s popular fishing waters and where special regulations apply. There’s a new photo guide to Colorado sport fish next to an easy-to-use reference on statewide possession limits.
“We took a hard look at how we could make the information more organized, dynamic and interesting for anglers,” said Amy Nickelson, brochure editor for the division. “By doing so, we have created a tool for anglers to help them understand the regulations and have enjoyable and successful fishing trips.”
A list of gold medal waters and state fishing records are also included in the new larger-sized brochure, along with tips on where to fly fish, ice fish, fish with your kids, catch big bass and much more.
Important information on protecting state waters from the spread of aquatic nuisance species like zebra mussels, quagga mussels and rusty crayfish has also been reorganized for easy reference. The new brochure includes step-by-step instructions on how to clean waders and gear to help stop the spread of these species.
The Division of Wildlife reminds anglers that the new fishing season begins April 1 and licenses for the 2011 season are on sale now at license agents, Division of Wildlife offices, online and by phone. Copies of the 2011 Colorado Fishing brochure are available where fishing licenses are sold.
