Arkansas River Pueblo Fly Fishing Report
Flow: 395 To 480 CFS
Water Temperature: 63 Degrees
This is a special trip for me, I have been a member of PPF (Pikes Peak Flyfishers) for over 20 years. This is the best fly fishing club I have ever been a member of. We have donated a trip for their annual auction since Steel City Anglers was formed. Steve and Rob were a kick to guide. It is not often that we guide experienced fisherman and it was a whole lot of fun.
The fishing conditions were the worst you can imagine! The water was brown/green flowing at 395 CFS to start and went up a hundred cfs while we were on the water. We had 20 MPH winds gusting to 40 MPH and a falling barometer. The only bugs that worked all day were an Olive Hares Ear and a Blue Copper John both size 18. We landed only one in the Hundred Yard Run and the rest in the Flag Hole. We are just a little over a month from winter storage and clear conditions! Trips are booking for October so give us a call the conditions are improving.
