Fishing is one of the more relaxing activities one can do here in Crested Butte and one of my personal favorite past times! It has this serene feel to it that almost seems enchanting while one is basking in the picturesque landscape of the surrounding mountains. How much better does it get than that?
Crested Butte
 has many lakes and clean, mountain rivers which include the East River, Taylor River, and Gunnison river. There are also a couple of premier subdivisions around these areas that offer fishing rights to residents, guests, and visitors. By fishing here, one can catch a great assortment of species of fish which include the Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, and the Kokanee Salmon.
