Angler interest has never been higher in Colorado, and those looking for opportunities to catch quality trout eventually seek out the 11 rivers and three lakes designated Gold Medal by Colorado Parks and Wildlife. But CPW shouldn’t be the lone voice for conservation. As resident and tourist populations continue to swell, so too will the number of anglers.
Trout Unlimited aims to make the most of that growth by educating, organizing and activating anglers to promote policies today that will make positive impacts on these vital resources for decades to come. Without sustained action by the anglers and agencies who care most about these iconic fisheries, Colorado’s Gold standard could soon be facing depression.
