GOLD MEDAL WATER: The Arkansas River was been designated Gold Medal Water by Colorado Parks and Wildlife in the spring of 2014. This distinction is given only to the most productive trout water in the state.  Over twenty years of cleanup efforts and habitat improvement induced a decade of consistent results in the size and quantity of fish per acre. The outcome is that now over a hundred miles of the Arkansas River from Leadville to Parkdale is officially recognized as one of the finest fisheries in the state!

The Upper Arkansas River Valley experienced very moderate temperatures this winter and the fish seemed to have wintered very well as a result.  Although temperatures were warmer than normal we still reported an average snowfall for the season, meaning the flows should be fantastic for the well-being of the fishery and still be maintainable for the walk/wade angler.  These factors put together frame a very favorable forecast for the upper river.  The early access has been remarkable and we are expecting a somewhat pedestrian run-off so the Upper Ark should fish well from now to late October.  Come on up and give the Upper Arkansas River a try for the 2015 season!
