Winter Fly Fishing Report: The Arkansas River

December 3, 2013
Author: Will Rice

"Thanks for inviting me out today gents, I'm pumped to fish some new water," I said as we began pulling piles of gear out of the car not far from the banks of the Arkansas River.  Working in a shop, I get a lot of invitations to fish from clients but I rarely get to take people up on their offers.  When I received the email from a couple of guys I had met at a Denver Trout Unlimited member meeting a few years ago, I decided to make it happen.

With the weather in the Front Range in full-on winter mode, we decided it was probably best to hit a tailwater within ~2 hours of Denver.  With parameters like that, we had our choice of options – the Blue River near Silverthorne or the South Platte River near Deckers or Cheesman Canyon, just to name a few.  Based on reports from anglers who had fished the water recently, we decided to try our luck on the Arkansas River near Pueblo.

Fly fishing in October is all about change.  The colors, the temperature, and the fishing conditions - are all changing. 

We spent a few days exploring new water on the Upper Colorado River, hit some old stand-by favorites on the Roaring Fork and the Frying Pan River, and poked around the Eagle River as well.  We found sporadic bouts of clear weather, rain, sleet, snow and hail.

Fly Fishing Report: The Skeena System and Steelhead on the Swing

Trouts Guide Service Manager Reid Baker just made it back from Northwest British Columbia targeting summer run steelhead on the Skeena River System. One of the few remaining completely wild steelhead fisheries, this region is known as one of the best places to target these anadramous fish as they make their way back into the river for their spring spawning.

Though there are no shortage of world renowned lodges and outfitters in the area, Reid opted for a do-it-yourself experience, keeping him mobile and able to bounce from river to river, not relegated to a single area and its given conditions in the timeframe. If one river in the drainage was looking to be at a better level or fishing reports more positive, he would be able to move easily and find wherever the fish were.
