    Cherry Creek Reservoir has catfish,walleye,troutand bass.The parks and lakes in Denver are all full of fish also.Hard to cast a line in Denver without catching something.:big_smile:

    You should prolly buy a Fishing Close to Home book like Kip Carey's Official Colorado Fishing Guide, 2nd..

    There are a ton of good fishing opportunities and most lakes have catfish in them. There's no one good magical spot in Colorado, cat fishing isn't really good here compared to out East. Putting the time in effort into finding your spot will take research and time. Some suggestions are
    Cherry Creek
    Aurora Reservoir
    Chatfield Reservoir and ponds
    Pueblo Reservoir
    John Martin Reservoir


    Good Luck

    I've been avidly fishing Colorado for about a year now and I have never caught a catfish. Try Oklahoma or Texas. I'm specifically moving away from Colorado because I can't find any catfish here.
