SUMMIT COUNTY — The Colorado Division of Wildlife is holding a hunter education class, coming up July 10 and July 11 in Kremmling. Completion of hunter education is required for anyone born after Jan. 1, 1949 who wants to hunt or apply for hunting licenses in Colorado. The classes at the Blue Valley Sportsman’s Club are from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day and the cost is $5 per person. The Blue Valley Sportsman’s Club is located on Colorado State Highway 9 between Kremmling and Silverthorne.
Participants must attend both classes and pass a test to receive a hunter education card. Advance registration for the class is required and space is limited. To register or get more information, contact the DOW office in Hot Sulphur Springs at (970) 725-6200.
Also in preparation for the fall hunting season, the division just released the latest installment in its online elk hunting university series. The June 21 edition is called “Hunting for the Dinner Table,” with a focus on how, where and when to get healthy meat.
In the statewide fishing report, CDOW reports that the hatch is on along the Colorado Rivers between Glenwood Springs and Rifle, with huge numbers of winged insects skimming above the water, followed by heavy and hungry fish.
In Green Mountain reservoir the fishing is still slow due to the lake rising about a foot a day, but a few trout are being caught on nightcrawlers, red power bait or salmon eggs.
In Williams Fork Reservoir, rainbow and brown trout, lake trout, northern pike and Kokanee are biting, with pike hanging in the shallows, as well as reports of large and plentiful rainbows.
