GLENWOOD SPRINGS – A Colorado community is ranked number one in a list of America's top 20 fishing towns.
In its February issue, Field and Stream magazine polled the nation's top angling professionals. Their consensus was that Glenwood Springs, where the Roaring Fork and Colorado Rivers merge, is the best place to live if you love to fish.
Field and Stream says: "You'd be hard-pressed to find a better combination of gold-medal water, blue-sky climate and stunning canyon-scapes anywhere in the world besides Glenwood Springs."
The magazine says Glenwood has the best fly fishing in Colorado and its location makes it only a day trip to the Eagle River, the Frying Pan and the Gunnison. The magazine also says you can even fish in Glenwood in the dead of winter.
The top five on the list:
1. Glenwood Springs, Colo.
2. Mountain Home, Ark.
3. Traverse City, Mich.
4. Bozeman, Mont.
5. Minocqua, Wis.
The February issue of Field and Stream hits newsstands next Wednesday.
