Welcome to ArkAnglers!


It's hard to believe we're already nearing December, with an outstanding fall season behind us on the Arkansas River.  Anglers will find a little more water in the river heading into winter this year.  Water managers have begun to move water from Twin Lakes in order to make some room in the reservoir for next spring's snowmelt, hopefully preventing any unnecessary artificial spring flush of water through the system.  If water is moved slowly throughout the winter, then low flows can be maintained through the spring months to benefit the fishery, allowing for a successful brown trout fry hatch in April and a low-stress season for the fishery in general before the high-water summer season sets in.    


Where and when to fish?  What to use?  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 look forward to fishing with you!
