Fishing in Telluride, CO
Telluride is quite the catch! And trout tends to be the name of the game across the Uncompahgre, with more lakes, streams and creeks than one angler could fit into a lifetime. With that, the cast leans mostly towards fly fishing, not to say there aren’t a couple lakes to bob around.
