Fish in Gold Medal Water in the Colorado River

Hot Sulphur Springs is ideally situated to take advantage of the segment of the Colorado River along Highway 40 between Granby and Kremmling that has been designated "Gold Medal Water" by the Colorado Division of Wildlife (CPW). Please be sure to use public access points. BLM Fishing Sites along Hwy 40: Sunset, Powers, Muddy Creek, and Wolford Reservoir.

Sunset is located about 7 miles west of Hot Sulphur Springs on US Hwy 40. Facilities include a parking area, a trail to the river, and a port-a-potty during the summer months. River access is about 1/4 mile long.

"Gold Medal Water" Designation means the catch-able trout are at least twelve inches long. Only 160 miles of Colorado's 8000 miles of trout streams carry the "Gold Medal" signature.

World-Famous Hot Sulphur Springs Pool
