S5:E5 Fishing Rocky Mountain National Park

Fishing Rocky Mountain National Park is a different experience than is fishing the national parks in Wyoming and Montana for several reasons. One is that there are no grizzlies. Another is elevation: Fishing in Colorado is more demanding physically, simply because the lowest elevation to start hiking is around 7,800 feet.

In this episode, we give you an overview of fishing Rocky Mountain National Park, discuss a few of its streams and high mountain lakes, and, hopefully, inspire you to carve out some time to fish this gorgeous place. The park may be crowded, so if you are fishing in the dead of summer, expect to work harder find places to fish. But it’s worth the effort.

  1. Great information on fishing Colorado in general, and The Rocky Mountain Park in particular.
    Your advice on altitude sickness was on point. In my younger days, I laughed about it. But, living at sea level, and going up to 10,000 feet last year was a killer.
    This year, my plan is to spend about five days at 2,000 feet before I make the trip to my destination at 6,000 feet. Hopefully, that will give me a chance to acclimate, and reduce the effects from the change in altitude.
