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.

Jon Shanko
As a native of Colorado, born in Boulder [don't hold it against me I had no choice] I've enjoyed many an activity this state has to offer. Skiing, hiking, climbing, white water rafting and fishing. One of my grandfathers showed me gardening and the other fishing, both have been hobbies all my life, though fishing took a back seat as I raised a family. Now that that my children are grown and giving me grandchildren, I find myself obsessed with fishing now.

Russ Orlowitz
Howdy, My name is Russ and I am a retired Army Sergeant Major (SGM) serving 31 1/2 in the Military Police Corps.I'm not overly picky when it comes to places to fish or the type of fish. I love big lakes, small lakes, high alpine lakes and rivers. Bottom line is I just love to get out and catch fish wether it is from shore, kayak, float tube or my boat. My prefered fishing method is spinning gear, tossing tubes, other jigs, or lures. Next in line would be trolling for kokes, lakers, pike, eyes etc. I do some fly and bubble fishing but due to some serious shoulder problems flipping a fly rod is a thing of the past for me. Let us not forget that I am die hard full fledged Ice Weirdo too.

Steve Cook
Hello FishExplorers, My name is Steve and lived and fished the eastern plains of Colorado since 1990. I was raised up in Texas fishing with my family for crappie, cats, and stripers. As the elevations have changed the passion for big fish in deep water has not. For the last 10 years walleye has become part of my passion and drives me crazy at times but it just pushes me to adapt to the changes. If it swims, runs, or flys Iím chasing it year around somewhere on the plains of Colorado or surrounding states. I enjoy helping others catch fish ďalmostĒ as much as catching them myself. So if I can help you guys and gal out in any way just contact me through my skipper/editor link. Tight lines
