Call us about our Fly Fishing 101

 

Welcome to ArkAnglers!

 

Our resilient brown trout are in extremely good shape heading into winter, due to strong hatches and lower flows through the typical high-water months of summer.  As we work through December and the colder months, the temperate weather of the valley will provide for many great days of fishing in the Arkansas River Valley.  Much of the upper Arkansas stays open and fishable throughout the winter, and sees far less traffic than many other rivers in the state during this time.  

 

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! 

 

Call (719) 539-4223 or email braden@arkanglers.com for questions or reservations.
