Default River Fishing...suggestions?

Fishing rivers and streams is my absolute favorite way to spend the day. I used to fish the Illinois often back in Oklahoma. As for Colorado I have mainly fished the Poudre up around the hatchery and the Big Thompson on occasion. A couple weeks ago I got the chance to fish the North Platte just north of Walden for a short while. Landed a few small brownies in the short amount of time we fished it. Any other suggestions on some other areas to fish that within 2 or 3 hours? I am currently in Greeley but will be relocating to South Denver in Sept. How about the Yampa River? I have heard there are areas where you can fish for both warm and cold water species. Where would that access be? Thanks for the suggestions!

I fish rivers......on the eastern plain for cats! So I doubt I could help you with trout rivers.

South Platte in Cheesman Canyon and many miles of the Arkansas are both readily accessible from south of town.* Up north..you named the ones I normally hit, Poudre, etc.* Yampa is alot of fun, river can be unpredictable, but many good lakes in the area for the slow times.* Good Luck
