The Yampa River was voted as the best spot to cast a line in the Craig Daily Press’ 2010 Best of Moffat County contest.

There are several options for casting a line in Northwest Colorado.

For the best, Craig Daily Press readers have picked the Yampa River in the 2010 Best of Moffat County contest.

The Yampa River stretches across Moffat County, and the reason it’s No. 1 is behind two reasons, said Ron Dellacroce, park manager for Yampa River State Park.



“The first reason it’s the best is diversity,” he said. “The second is access.”

The Yampa River contains brown trout, rainbow trout, channel catfish and northern pike all close to town.

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.



Fishing near Craig or around Dinosaur is completely different, Dellacroce said.

“It’s a little different everywhere you go,” he said. “It’s full of really good places to fish.”
