Top Ice Fishing Charters in Colorado

Ice Fishing in Colorado

Famed for the Rocky Mountains’ stunning scenery and a wealth of ski resorts, Colorado is geared for winter sports. With over 2,000 lakes in the “Centennial State,” it’s no surprise that ice fishing in Colorado is a favorite pastime. Let an experienced fishing guide take you out on the ice and experience the thrill of fishing in below-zero temperatures!

When to Go

Peak season usually runs from December through February, but can last longer depending on where you fish. Generally, the majority of the state freezes over in winter, with the south west being the only exception.
 

Where to Go

Fort Collins

The fourth most populous city in Colorado is located in the north, and is surrounded by freshwater lakes. Explore hundreds of them out of Fort Collins and Loveland, with the best action taking place in Lakes Boyd, Boedecker, and Lon Hagler. 
 
These waters are full of plenty of exciting and tasty fish, but the prime species you’ll target in winter are Crappie, Sunfish, Yellow Perch, and Steelhead. Get ready for a productive day as you battle it out with these beauties to keep warm, and head home with a delicious treat.

 

Denver Area

At the eastern foothills of the Rocky Mountains, the state capital is a great base for fishing year round. The pick of the lakes in the Denver area is Chatfield Lake, located south of the city in Littleton. Target Walleye in this man-made reservoir to get your fill of exciting fishing and a delicious catch. 

 

Central Colorado

West of Colorado Springs, there’s a whole world of ice fishing to explore. Head to Lake George en-route to the Eleven Mile Reservoir, and take in some of the best fishing in the state. These rich waters are home to Kokanee Salmon and Cutthroat Trout, as well as  the usual freshwater suspects. You'll get  more bang for your buck here!

 

The Rockies

The freezing waters in the Rocky Mountains are what dreams are made of. Whether fishing the various waterways around Lake Granby – Colorado’s largest natural body of water – or heading to Gunnison’s Blue Mesa Reservoir, you’ll be casting off in some stunning, snow-capped surroundings. 
 
You’ll get to go after a wider range of fish here than anywhere else in the state. Make the most of the winter conditions to keep warm and head home for a hearty meal with your catch. 
 

How to Prepare

When ice fishing in Colorado, you’ll be under the guidance of a professional, experienced fishing guide. With a sonar, augur, ice hut, and all the latest fishing gear, you’ll have everything you need for a productive day out.
 
Wrap up warm, bring some drinks and snacks, and settle in for a satisfying day out. You’ll also need to grab a Colorado fishing license, so make sure to buy yours before heading on the ice.
 
The fish here thrive  during the colder months, so there’s no reason for you to miss out on the chance to go after them. Book a Colorado ice fishing excursion and make the most of your winter!
