Explore Fishing in Winter Park, CO
The fishing in Grand County is just grand! With 1,000 miles of streams and rivers, almost 1,000 acres of high mountain lakes, 11,000 acres of reservoirs, as well as stocked ponds, there are fishing opportunities for everyone. Wading, floating, boating, ice fishing or fishing from the shore — it's your choice all four seasons. From remote to easily accessed locations, the combination of great fishing, wildlife viewing, and stunning views is an experience of a lifetime! Some of our waters are designated by the Colorado Division of Wildlife as Gold Medal Waters; high-quality, cold-water habitats that produce abundant, trophy-size trout. Twenty-five percent of Colorado’s Gold Medal Waters are in Grand County. There are many public access locations to our fisheries throughout Grand County.
