Fishing Licenses

 Fishing licenses are not necessary to participate, the first weekend in June is a free fishing weekend in Colorado. The Colorado Division of Wildlife will stock the lake with fresh trout in advance of the derby. There will be ample fishing opportunities for everyone. Bring a pole and tackle, find the perfect fishing hole, and compete to catch the biggest fish!
