Directions:  The Arkansas River has fishable waters from Leadville to Pueblo, with miles of river access in between. These are some favorite access points. To reach the Pueblo tail water, an excellent winter and early spring fishery, head towards Denver on hwy 36. Just outside Denver merge onto I-25 south and head towards Pueblo about 100 miles to the south. Get off at exit 101 and head west on hwy 50 for 2 miles then left on hwy 45. After about 3 miles you will cross the river then turn right on hwy 96. There is a parking area for the Arkansas about 2 miles up on the right. There are several miles of access from here downstream, and about a half mile of upstream access. If you would like to reach the sections of river upstream of Pueblo simply head west on hwy 50. Once upstream of Canyon City the access points are numerous and well marked.

The Ultimate Fly Fishing Report
Casting a fly in a tranquil mountain stream, feeling the tug on the line, and holding a beautiful rainbow trout makes us feel alive and intensely connected with nature. Fly fishing is our way of life and we are blessed with hundreds of nearby rivers and streams just a short distance away from Boulder. From the swift spring waters of the Clear Creek to the meandering bends of the South Platte, it's critical to consider fishing conditions in advance and prepare accordingly. We rely on our experienced guides who venture into the wild to let us know which rivers favor fly fishing, where fish are biting, and which fly patterns are most effective. Planning a successful fishing trip also requires knowledge of stream flows at various river points and an accurate weather forecast for a given destination. At Rocky Mountain Anglers, we are dedicated to providing all avid anglers with detailed and timely information about hatches, water, and weather conditions. So before you head out the door on your next fishing adventure, visit our web site to find valuable information that will prepare you for a successful trip. Have fun chasing after your next trophy trout and enjoy nature's beauty!The Rocky Mountain Anglers Crew
