What type of basic equipment do I need for fishing in Colorado?

I used to go fishing quite a bit as a kid in Utah, but now all that remains from that is my reel and pole. Now I’m in Colorado for medical school with my wife and daughter and was hoping to get started again camping and fishing on our (very few) breaks. Any suggestions on how to get started with fishing equipment? What all will I need from A to Z??

Thanks.

What type of fishing line to use?

I have 4 reel & rods. With 1 of them I will be bass fishing or fishing for catfish. I will use my bigger reel for those. Smaller ones for bream, crappies, etc. My question is what type of line should I use on all of them. Do I have to buy more than one roll or box of line? If so, please explain. Thanks!
