I was wondering when do all of the fish in colorado spawn....

rainbows -spring
largemoutsh-spring
browns-fall

this is pretty much all I know for sure ....I think it would be cool to have a reference on here to know when all the fish in colorado spawn

spawning in colorado is different then just a date on the calender           the temp has to be just right and in colorado it doesnt always happen the same time of year every year

Cats spawn at 65-70 degrees IF all factors are good, such as pH, oxygen, structure, and forage.  Generally speaking I fish for prespawn cats in the spring, and then fish for spawning cats in mid-May through mid-June.  Carp don't spawn until July, but it only lasts a couple of weeks.  If I remember right walleye spawn in April, crappie and sunfish in May.

I've caught cutty's in 11-mile in january that have well developed skiens of eggs and then caught cutty's in high lakes that are spawning in late july-early august.
