Colorado Surprise

  Fishing in Colorado is possible.

I have hesitated thinking about fishing, as much as I love it and would love to eat fresh fish, due to the cost of licensing.

Colorado, my current home state, has a huge benefit for folks over 64.

There are two parts to most fishing in Colorado. You must have a wildlife habitat stamp and a fishing license. The habitat stamp costs $10 per year. The cost is waived if you are over 64. The fishing license normally costs $26/year for residents. However, senior annual licenses for those 64 or older cost just $1. And over 8,000′ it is cool in the summer.

I have an urge to go somewhere other than the home state, but this fishing license benefit and the cool summers may change the travel plans.

Do you fish while traveling? Are the non-residential license fees too much?
