When it comes to the United States everyone knows that there is 50 states that are all unique in their own ways, and of course when we start to think about all the uniqueness of each state then we have to consider that there are some states that are better and some states that aren’t so fun as compared to some of the more fun states. For the most part the western side of the United States is a lot more fun because let’s be honest, the west is the best, and the east is kind of boring when it comes down to comparing it to the west. There just isn’t the same type of nature and landscapes on the east coast as there is in the western region of the United States, and it’s not to say that the east isn’t beautiful because it is a really great place where a ton of people live for a reason, and that’s because it is comfortable and really pretty a lot of the times of the year, but nothing compares to the great American west, and when it comes to the American west one of the best states in the region has to be Colorado.

Colorado has everything and then some when it comes to the western states in the United States, and a lot of people think that California is the best state in the country because it kind of gets that reputation, but the truth of the matter is that now in 2016 Colorado is definitely the coolest state by far in the United States, and there is a lot of good reasons for that. Partly because it is in the middle of the country and has been a sort of getaway place for all the people who have gotten sick of the east coast and wanted to head west to a comfortable spot but didn’t want to have to drive all the way to California settle down in Colorado. It’s also one of the best places ever of all time to settle down in and start a life that you know is going to be a lot of fun and can be an endless amount of adventure.

Of course there is a lot of outdoor activities that are all a part of the Colorado culture, and one of the most fun things to do in the nature of Colorado has to be fishing of all types. Of course a lot of people come to Colorado for skiing and other extreme sports, but the fishing in Colorado is really fun and you can definitely catch some great fresh water fish everywhere you go, and there are simply a ton of great spots in and around the Front Range area as well as high up in the mountains where you might not expect there to be a really good fish population because it’s so cold. But even though the water may be cold year round, you are definitely going to get a lot of great fishing experiences in Colorado, and that’s why it is one of the best fishing states in all of America and has become a fishing tourism spot just as much as skiing in terms of the summer time tourism.

So let’s say you may live in Boulder or Denver and you want to get out of the cities and find some really good fishing spots because of course there are a ton that are within an hour drive of where you live so you might as well get up there and start looking for your favorite spots that are just on the other side of the front range. If you live in Boulder then one of the best spots to go fishing has to be Gross Reservoir which is just on the other side of the Flatirons and is the drinking water reservoir for the city of Denver, and it really is a beautiful place. If you do end up fishing at Gross Reservoir then you’ll want to have a four wheel drive car that can go all the way around the lake on the dirt road to the boat entrance, and then you will want to hike around the lake to the part of the lake where the lake meets the rushing river. There is the spot where you will meet trout gangs and other great fishermen in one of the best spots in the Front Range area.
