Right next to the Treeline Trial Challenge Course lies a pond flush with trout ready for a nibble on the end of your line. Guests need to bring their own rod and reel, as well as have a valid fishing license (for ages 16+) before they ride the gondola up.

Fishing at the Trout Hook Fishing Pond is of course free, but if you would like to take the gondola to access the pond, you will need a Sightseeing Ticket or Package.

Know Before You Go

Bring Gear

Bring your own fishing pole, bait, and tackle.  There are many shops to rent gear from throughout the Roaring Fork Valley.

Fishing License

You must have a valid fishing license if you are over the age of 16.

Bug Spray

Bring bug spray as bodies of water are naturally a habitat for mosquitoes.

Sun Protection

The altitude in Colorado makes you more susceptible to sunburn. Make sure to apply sunscreen before fishing. Sunglasses, hats, and other sun protection will make your day more pleasant.
