One of the locals’ favorite pastimes in Steamboat is fly fishing the Yampa River. Anglers enjoy several miles of public access in town casting for rainbow and brown trout. The river offers a peaceful setting with stunning views and world-class trout. And the fun doesn't stop when the snow starts falling, around here we cast our lines year-round.
Explore our state park fishing grounds in summer or winter by heading out to Stagecoach, Pearl Lake or Steamboat Lake State Park.
Still not ready to drop in a line? The New York Times can tell you a thing or two about fishing in Steamboat Springs with their article, "Casting in Colorado Away From the Crowds".
