Colorado Master Angler Award Qualifying Lengths

The Colorado Division of Wildlife'sMaster Angler Award Program recognizes anglers who catch fish of trophy size and promotes the wise use and conservation of those trophy fish. The award program has two categories one for fish that are kept, and one for fish that are released. Anglers who qualify for an award must submit an application form that details the catch of the fish. Qualifying lengths for each species are listed in this brochure. The award program is based on lengths of fish rather than on weight, so that caught fish may be measured and released if desired.
