Welcome to ArkAnglers!
It's prime time on the Arkansas River - stable flows, prolific summer hatches, and hoppers animating the shoreline. Expect flows in the 700 cfs range through mid-August, and then a reduction to 400-500 cfs as we head into September and the fabulous fall fishing! Also fishing great our the high lakes and streams of the San Isabel National Forest. In fact, the challenge this time of year is not finding a place to fish but deciding on which place to fish! 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!
Call 719-539-3474 or stop by the Salida shop to check sale prices and inventories.
