Fish Explorer Colorado Field Editors

We aim to be the most well-rounded, thorough, and up-to-date resource for fishing information in Colorado. To accomplish this takes a lot of people, not just the pros and experts, but the typical fishermen like all of us who simply enjoy going out fishing and learning and sharing our love of the sport.

Fish Explorer Field Editors are a great sampling of anglers who are not only good at what they do, but knowledgable and responsible fishermen who understand that sharing their love of fishing and their care for the resources goes a long way in making fishing better for everyone. Field Editors not only write blogs on FishExplorer.com, but also help manage the fishing information and helpers in their region.

When you get a chance, thank your field editors and visit their bio pages by clicking on the links below. They are some of the freshest minds in Colorado fishing.
Tom McInerney State Editor
Tom fishes. He also teaches computer science to elementary students, goes fishing, brews a simple but tasty pale ale, goes fishing, golfs occasionally, and goes fishing. Spin rod, fly rod, or ice rod, shore, boat, or float tube, Tom loves fishing, and most importantly, has fun doing it.
Alan Peak
Alan Peak is addicted to fishing. By day he is a fly fishing guide and by night he dreams of his next day on the water. You can find him guiding and fishing primarily on the South Platte nearly every day of the week. If Alan is not with his family he is guiding, fishing or tying flies. If you see Alan on the water, say hello! Normally, he ties a half dozen flies of the day for each day for people he meets on the river.
John Stevens
I love to fish. I fish Cherry Creek Reservoir and Aurora reservoir primarily from shore, Cherry Creek mostly at night. My main target is the ever elusive Walleye, but I have caught many other species as well. My forte is research ! I believe that the more that we know our prey, their food, habits, patterns... the better we can be as fisherman.
