Fishing in Estes Park, Colorado

Enjoy fishing in Estes Park, Colorado!

The close proximity of Rocky Mountain National Park, with its many varieties of streams, rivers and lakes, makes Estes Park a great place for a fishing enthusiast, no matter what level of experience you’re at.

The eastern entrance, the simplest way to access the park from the town area, is where many visitors begin their trip into the park.  The eastern side of the park is home to native greenbacks—a testament to the park’s efforts to reintroduce them here—while other species of brown, brook, rainbow and cutthroat trout are most commonly found overall.

It’s easy to explore the vast network of trails to fishing locations on the east side with a good map in hand; ideally you’ll also find a quiet place away from the crowds that may accumulate.  Another option is to get in touch with local stores like Kirk’s Flyshop and Estes Angler for guided trips to more secluded areas.  These trips range in length from 4 hours to overnight backcountry expeditions. Equipment is included so there’s no reason not to enjoy fishing in Estes Park, CO during your visit.

If you are over the age of 16, please note that a fishing license will be required except for the first full weekend of June.  Please visit our local shops and marina for more information!
