From my understanding, here are the fish Native to Colorado:

1) Black Bullhead
2) Channel Catfish
3) Green Sunfish
4) Greenback Cutthroat
5) Orange Spotted Sunfish


***Questionable

*Colorado River Cutthroat
*Rio Grande Cutthroat
*Mountain Whitefish

Am I missing any? And are the questionable ones native or non-native to the state?

Hey thanks for the super helpful reply.

And I did google it prior to this post.

Finding conflicting lists, I thought I would ask some fellow anglers. Sure glad I did. Boy, what would I ever do without you, ass.

It was my understanding that Pike were non-native/introduced... And cutbows are a cross between native cuttys and non-native bowbows...

Check the Lewis and Clark logs. They found bunches of cutts as far east as missouri river. Also check the Smithsonian, they requested stuff from Lewis and Clark. Like a 300lbs flathead from the Mississippi. Cool stuff.

Greenback Cutthroats are the only fish that count.

The rest stink like fish.

You should be researching TN fishing not Colorado.
