Copper Mountain is in the middle of some of the best high country fishing in Colorado, including Clinton Gulch Reservoir, which harbors a population of rare and beautiful cutthroat trout, the only trout native to the state. Get information on fishing and licenses from the Colorado Division of Parks and Wildlife. West Tenmile Creek, running through the heart of the resort, is stocked with rainbows and browns, with great fishing right in the village. A series of ponds along Interstate 70 between Copper Mountain and Frisco are also well stocked with fish, including feisty and elusive brook trout. Near Silverthorne, the Blue River is designated as a catch-and-release Gold Medal trout stream, full of big browns. Rainbow trout are also making a comeback after being devastated by whirling disease in the 1990s. Farther north, Green Mountain Reservoir even has Kokanee Salmon, and some hearty anglers enjoy ice fishing on Dillon Reservoir all winter long.

Great Trip!

Just back from a ski trip at Copper where we stayed in Westlake 386. Leigh's communication with us was great. She gave us turn-by-turn directions that directed us to her condo. Once inside, we had everything we needed and were amazed at how clean and roomy the condo was. After a long day of skiing, we enjoyed sitting on the enclosed balcony and watching them groom the mountain for the next day. We were a little nervous that we were too far away from the ski lifts, but once we got there, we realized it was a very short walk. This was our first time to ski Copper and we will be back next year. I think we found our permanent ski vacation spot. Thanks Leigh!
