Read below to hear about Brain Hilbert and his recent half-day walk/wade trip on the beautiful Arkansas River at Kobe. The Ark is one of our favorite public water options and provides beautiful views and hungry fish. Stay tuned to our Guide Reports section of the website for more reports from various rivers as we continue to get clients out on some of our favorite water.

Productive flies

Rainbow Warriors always produce

Nice morning on the Ark today. We fished a dry dropper set up the entire morning and consistently hooked trout in the deeper runs and small pocket water. A size 14 hopper I tie got quite a few eats this morning but none of them stuck. The hoppers are still small on the Ark so keep it a size 14 if you can. Size 20 rainbow warrior and size 20 tan zebra midges accounted for all of our fish today. The morning started off a little slow but quickly got hot once things warmed up. All in all a great day on the water with a fun mother and daughter! Good luck out there!
