Best of luck with your endeavors in Colorado. I worked in Denver for a 2 1/2 year period and loved the state while I was there. There is so much to see and do there. Actually that's where I caught the fly fishing bug but never found the time to get out on the water. Would love to get back now that I'm retired..
There are some cool things here but here on the front range nearly all of it is private. There are lots of people here but the overall angler knowledge/ experience seems lot compared to the west. Or maybe the knowledgeable and experienced anglers keep a low profile.
Probably a great place for a fly fishing school..
We'll be here for a while. But I am thanking Idaho is in our future long term. Maybe Orifino. At least if my wife can ditch her evergreen tree allergy.
