CPW DOW header Colorado Parks Wildlife
PUEBLO, Colo. – June 6-7 is special for all anglers across Colorado because it marks the annual Free Fishing Weekend. All possession limits, fishing methods and bait methods still apply, but a fishing license is not required for either day.

Youth-fly-fishing-funAs part of Free Fishing Weekend, Lake Pueblo State Park will host its Annual Kids Fishing Derby on June 6.  Children ages 3-12 are welcome, and registration is from 7-8 a.m. at Anticline Fishing Pond located within Rock Canyon just east of the Swim Beach.

The first 100 kids to register will receive a free fishing pole.  Fishing will begin at 8 a.m. and run until 10 a.m.  At 10 a.m., fishing will conclude and prizes will be awarded.

The event is free, but a parks pass ($7/day or $70/annual) will be required.  Parks passes can be purchased at any park entry gate using the self service station.


CPW is an enterprise agency, relying primarily on license sales, state parks fees and registration fees to support its operations, including: 42 state parks and more than 350 wildlife areas covering approximately 900,000 acres, management of fishing and hunting, wildlife watching, camping, motorized and non-motorized trails, boating and outdoor education. CPW’s work contributes approximately $6 billion in total economic impact annually throughout Colorado.
