Winter fishing in Ridgway Colorado

Ridgway Fall And Winter Fishing

Visiting Ridgway in the fall and winter gives you access to great fishing with less pressure, leading to a more productive day. If you have never tried fishing during your winter vacation, we encourage you to give it a try. There's nothing quite like having the whole river to yourself on a crisp, cloudless winter day. The Uncompahgre River in the Pacochupuk section of the Ridgway State Park is one of the many great places to fish.

For wintertime conditions on the Uncompahgre River and other area rivers, fishing enthusiasts can go to this website before heading out on the river: fishrigs.com/fish-report

Dallas Creek and the Ridgway Reservoir are also spots where you can fish year-round. For information on local fishing spots, check out this guide produced by the Ouray Visitors Center: http://www.ouraycolorado.com/images/ouray/files/fishing.pdf
