Date 07-Jun-19
Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : Arkansas River - Buena Vista to Canon City As of 6/7/2019, water temperatures are hanging in the 40s. Flows are way up compared to last week as a lot of runoff has been entering the waterway. This is causing poor visibility and challenging conditions for anglers to compete with. Due to fast flows, fish will be looking for any slower moving sections of river (banks, pockets etc). Large streamers, large dries with droppers will likely be the most productive route. With fast high water be extra careful if you find yourself wading. Flows: 2530 CFS

Below Pueblo Reservoir As of 6/7/2019, flows have been on the increase all week long. Fly anglers are having success targeting trout by nymphing San Juan worms, egg patterns, and larger stonefly patterns, but don't forget your dry patterns as hatches should encourage rising fish in the later parts of the day Anglers fishing with spin casting gear are having luck with in-line spinner baits or small jerk baits. Due to the higher flows fish will be on the search for slow moving water where they can get some relief. Flows: 1960 CFS

About: - Much of the Arkansas River is surrounded by beautiful mountains. Driving on Route 24 along the headwaters provides a spectacular view. The most heavily fished and popular section of the Arkansas is from Buena Vista to Canon City. This section is approximately 75 miles long, with beautiful pocket water, pools, riffles and runs holding an excellent population of browns and a good population of rainbows. Trout in the Arkansas average 13-15 inches although fish to 18 inches and better are not that uncommon.

Camping: Stretching for 148 miles along one of the West's premier recreation rivers. AHRA operates five campgrounds along the river with a total of 86 campsites available.

From Steamboat Springs go west two miles on U.S. 40 to County Road 129. Turn north and drive 26 miles.
