Anglers of all types and all skill levels have plenty to choose from in the Grand Lake area. Five species of trout provide the bulk of fishing available: the native cutthroat, rainbows, browns, brooks and lake trout. Fly-fishing is at its best on the Colorado and its tributaries. Grand Lake and its sister reservoirs, Granby and Shadow Mountain, are popular for Mackinaws and Kokanee Salmon. A Colorado State license is required for anyone over 16 and can be picked up at most marina's or tackle shops. While you're at it, be sure to pick up a copy of the Colorado Fishing Brochure that contains regulations and information on the area.
