Best Fishing Hole

Gold: Lake Isabel

San Isabel National Forest Highway 165

The gorgeous scenery, the fresh air, and the close proximity to Pueblo make this a repeat winner for the best fishing spot. This huge lake is regularly stocked and easily accessible for anglers of all abilities. Different varieties of bass and trout as well as walleye, catfish, and crappie are all swimming around waiting to play the age-old game of cat and mouse with anyone who thinks they have what it takes to land the big one. Proper licensing required for fishers over 16 years old.
