Trout Fishing in Gold Medal Waters
Gold Medal Waters are fishing areas that have been designated by the Colorado Wildlife Commission as great spots to catch large trout.
About Our Local Fishing
These waters are defined as being able to produce 60 pounds of trout per acre, and at least twelve 14″ or larger trout per acre. Only 322 miles of Colorado’s 9000 miles of trout streams, and three lakes, carry the “Gold Medal” signature and the Rio Grande is one of them!
Here’s good news for dedicated anglers – The 17-mile Gold Medal Water section of the Rio Grande flows right beside Silver Thread Basecamp.
Bring your fishing tackle and your camera. These trophy-sized brown and rainbow trout are ready, willing, and eager to take your bait.
