HUNTING AND FISHING
The Division of Wildlife manages 230
wildlife areas and oversees 6,000 miles
of streams and more than 2,000 lakes and
reservoirs. The Division of Wildlife
regulates fishing activities for fish found in
the waters of Colorado, including rainbow
trout and walleye—popular species for
fishing. A weekly report of Colorado’s
fishing conditions is published on the
division’s website. The Division of Wildlife
also regulates hunting and enforces hunting
regulations for big game, small game and
waterfowl. Deer, elk, antelope and bear
are among the most popular animals
sought by hunters. A qualified hunter
education course is required prior to
applying for a hunting license. Combined,
hunting and fishing add up to a $3.2
billion-per-year industry in Colorado.
