DENVER -- Colorado's backcountry's streams and lakes offer a lifetime of fishing opportunity for anglers willing to explore. But hiking into these high-country fisheries can be daunting for those who have never done it before.
To help give anglers the skills and confidence needed to take that next step, Colorado Parks and Wildlife is joining with Backcountry Hunters and Anglers to present "A Taste of Backcountry Angling," on August 23 near Empire, Colorado.
This day-long clinic is designed for intermediate anglers and will offer presentations on safe backcountry travel and camping, tips on catching trout in lakes and streams, and hands-on instruction in spin- and fly fishing. Participants will also have an opportunity to fish two high-country lakes during the morning and afternoon bite.
