Gold: Lake Pueblo
Lake Pueblo State Park, 640 Pueblo Reservoir Road, (719) 561-9320
For a chance to catch the big one, locals consider Lake Pueblo the best place to toss in their lines. Considered the best fishing “hot spot” in Pueblo, the lake provides over 4,600 surface acres of water, and 60 miles of shoreline. The lake is well stocked with native fish such as smallmouth bass, walleye, saugeye, wiper and catfish. Thousands of people take to the lake each year to try their luck and maybe a little bait, in hopes of catching a prize fish.
