Welcome to ArkAnglers!
As this is written (6/30/15), summer is coming into full expression in the upper Arkansas River basin. The flows in the river, though still elevated, are fishable from Leadville to Bighorn Sheep Canyon and we have just yesterday resumed float fishing; many of our tributary streams have passed through their runoff period and returned to more seasonable flows; and almost all of the alpine lakes are iced off and accessible. These are the glory days in the valley, when the toughest daily decision is often simply where to direct one's fly. This website is meant to help with those decisions. From the descriptions of different access points to the three reports updated almost daily, it is our hope that you will find the information herein to be both timely and accurate. For questions or to make guide trip reservations, one can email us from the site or call us at 719-539-4223. And, of course, our two fly shops in Salida and Buena Vista stand ready, seven days a week, to provide hands-on instruction and guidance for those who wish to venture further afield or deeper into the details.
We have a great several months ahead of us in the valley.
We look forward to fishing with you!
