My friend Erik messaged me yesterday that the trees are looking great up around Cottonwood right now. This may be a great weekend to head up the Pass and take in some of Colorado's finest! So what's the fishing looking like?
The Arkansas River is fishing well right now.=, especially in Bighorn Sheep Canyon and Browns Canyon. Big stonefly dries in the morning, emergers and nymphs in mid day, and hoppers and hopper-caddis rigs in the late afternoon and evening. Current flow: he Arkansas near Salida is at 245 cfs. Further downstream at Wellsville, 267 cfs.
The Colorado River up by Windy Gap is Red Hot. Size 8-10 Rubber Legs, small Tungsten Zebras, and Chernobyl Ants are taking fish from mid-morning to dusk. Current flow: The Colorado River near Windy Gap is at 55 cfs.
Don't miss this fun day with special fly fishing presentations, doorbuster deals, casting demonstrations, drawings and prizes and more!
