Every week I look through the best videos on Youtube and I often come across images and information that you can use on your next angling trip.  Your friends and family will be impressed with what you learn.  

Gold Medal Streams

The Colorado Wildlife Commission designates certain streams and lakes as "gold medal" because these areas offer outstanding angling opportunities for large trout.  There are over 9,000 miles of trout streams and only 168 miles are designated as gold.

Here is a list of them:

Animas River-  Just north of Durango along Highway 550

Blue River-  About 35 miles downstream from the Dillon Dam

Crystal River-  From the headwaters to the confluence with Roaring Fork River

Delaney Butte Lakes-  North Delaney Butte Lakes has the biggest trout

Fryingpan River-  15 miles from the Ruedi Reservoir Dam to Roaring Fork River

Gunnison River- Downstream to the confluence of North Fork of the Gunnison

North Platte River-  Close to the Wyoming border

Rio Grande-  Go downstream from South Fork to Del Norte

Roaring Fork River-  12 miles from the confluence with the Crystal River

South Platte River-  Several good sections 

Spinney Mountain Reservoir

Steamboar Lake

If you do any Colorado fishing and get some big ones, I'd love to see the pictures and I'll profile your story in my newsletter.  Check out my Colorado Pictures page for details.  

You could even get Colorado's Picture or Video of the Week!
