Colorado Parks and Wildlife reel summer in with Free Fishing Weekend

License-free fishing remains tradition for Colorado Parks and Wildlife every first weekend of June. A number of Colorado’s parks and trails are known for hiking, biking, and even paddle boarding. This annual event is a kick off and reminder about how much fishing can be an active opportunity for summertime too.

“We encourage folks to get out there. The purpose of it is just to introduce as many folks as we can to fishing and how much fun it can be in Colorado,” Travis Duncan expresses, “The conditions vary in Colorado are you going in and look at that fishing brochure and know the regulations for the body of water you’re in, just to make sure you’re using bait that’s allowed for the area that you’re fishing in. A lot of our state wildlife areas are artificial; fly fish only, those kind of things.”
