Cache la Poudre River - From the Big Bend Campground downstream to the confluence of Black Hollow Creek is designated as Wild Trout Waters, which means there are specific regulations set in place and managed by the US Forest Service (Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests) so that many anglers can have the opportunity to fish for wild trout. No boating is allowed on the river. On this stretch, you must use artificial flies and lures only and you must return fish to the water immediately (catch and release). The entire Poudre River is open to fishing but there are restricted areas, which are all clearly marked. There are also many areas along the river which are not restricted - open for any kind of bait, and you may keep your limit of the fish you catch.
