Fishing With Kids in Boulder County

Fishing is a great way to enjoy summer time fun with your family, and luckily for us, Boulder County has some of the best spots to go fishing with kids. Whether you are looking for a way to relax and unwind on a Sunday morning with your kids, want to teach them the trade, or want to add another element to your active weekend adventures, fishing will serve you well. As the temperatures go from warm to hot in the summer, finding a nice shady spot along the lake or creek is the way to go. Be sure to pack plenty of water, a few snacks or a full blown picnic to enjoy on your adventure. Many spots allow dogs, though most require them to be on a leash, so it really is an activity the whole family can enjoy.

Boulder County regularly updates the rules and regulations for fishing at all of the available spots, so be sure to check them out before you choose a spot. The very best part of fishing with kids? 15 and under are absolutely FREE! Fun and affordable? We can all agree on that! Just be sure that all adults over 15 have their fishing license before you head out on your adventure!


Some of Our Favorite Spots to Go Fishing with Kids in Boulder County:

  1. Sawhill Ponds
    Here you will find more than just fish to meet your wildlife spotting expectations. Eagles, muskrats, Canadian geese and much more frequent this area regularly. There is a dock and a picnic area here for your convenience.
  2. Wonderland Lake
    Conveniently located in North Boulder, this is an easily accessible spot for your summer fishing plans, and is easily accessible by several different bus routes running through North Boulder. Since boats and swimming are not allowed at here, it offers the perfect relaxing getaway for you and your family.
  3. Teller Lakes
    Teller Lake No. 5 and Teller Lake South are both great spots to go fishing with kids. You will enjoy the experience of being away from the hustle and bustle with just a short drive (or bus ride!) to the trailhead.
  4. Boulder Creek
    A popular catch and release spot, this is a great spot that is both easy to get to and fun for the whole family. There are plenty of good lunch spots nearby, or you can pack a picnic to enjoy creekside.
  5. KOA Lake
    Located just off a bike path, you and the kids can ride your bikes to the lake for a bit of fresh air and exercise. Be sure to pack plenty of water and a good sized lunch to enjoy lakeside.
