The BV whitewater park and surrounding waters are fishing very well. Flows around 250 cfs coupled with water temps in the upper 50s to low 60s means active fish and bugs. Look for browns out along the edges early and late, with a movement toward more cover, either faster or deeper water, during the middle of the day.
There is a significant segment of public river access above and below the Buena Vista whitewater park and boat ramp, out at the east end of Main Street. There is parking and restrooms at the top of the boat ramp. The source for fly-fishing equipment and information in Buena Vista is the ArkAnglers shop, located at 517 S. Highway 24 (719-395-1796).
