Welcome to ArkAnglers!


After the most beautiful September we can recall, October promises to provide unseasonably good conditions and action in the upper Arkansas River valley. On this website you can learn about our float and wade trips on about 100 miles of the Arkansas River, our many stream and high lake trips in the San Isabel National Forest, and our trophy trout trips on forks of the South Platte River and South Park reservoirs. There's so much good fishing in this part of Colorado, the big challenge is deciding which place to fish! With low flows on the river, wading and floating both provide great avenues for approaching the fish. Expect stable flows through the month, with a likely increase in November.    


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!
