RBC I Whether you’re a seasoned angler or you’ve never picked up a rod, finding a place to fish in Colorado has never been easier. Colorado Parks and Wildlife has launched several new tools for anglers ready to enjoy everything Colorado fishing has to offer.
The Colorado Fishing Atlas, the latest interactive mapping tool offered by Colorado Parks and Wildlife, allows users to search for fishing opportunities by species, specific interest or proximity to home or destination.
One can use the simple map interface to locate and view recommended opportunities for the family, remote fly fishing or ice fishing. Additional information such as handicap-accessible fishing access, stocked waters, boat ramps, special fishing regulations, stream gages, license agents and Gold Medal waters is included, overlaid on top of Bing street maps, USGS topographic maps or high-resolution color aerial photography.
The atlas also includes a printable Fishing Resource Report that provides nearby state and federal management agency offices, emergency facilities, campgrounds and fishing license agents.
The Colorado Fishing Atlas can be found online through the fishing page on Colorado Parks and Wildlife website at cpw.state.co.us. New users of the Colorado Fishing Atlas can also watch short video tutorials that explain the system.
In addition to the new interactive atlas, Colorado anglers can now share tips, share recipes, get the latest conditions, find a fishing buddy, find a fishing clinic, ask questions or post pictures of their latest catch on the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Fishing page on Facebook. Facebook users can find and “like” the new page by searching for “CPW Fishing” or by going to facebook.com/CPWFishing.
