Our Back Yard Fishery
In 2014, 102 miles of the Arkansas River were added to the list
of Gold Medal trout fisheries, the longest stretch of
trophy fly fishing water in the state of Colorado.
The Arkansas is a freestone river which boasts thriving populations of Brown Trout and stocked populations of healthy Rainbow Trout. Post run-off the Arkansas becomes one of the best hopper-dropper fisheries in the country.
