Location: Fort Collins, CO
The Poudre is a small, but complicated river. In its upper stretches, there are a variety of trout species available. These fish get plenty of angler pressure, but there are miles of public access along this picturesque steam. It’s worth a trip just to enjoy the views.
It is a good idea to check fishing reports at shops like Elkhorn and St. Pete’s before heading out. Standard nymphs, dries, and streamers may not trigger a response from trout that have seen them all before.
