Top Waters to Fish This This Fall

 

Pueblo Tailwater

 

The fish on the "PT" have been well rested for the past three months thanks consistently high flows courtesy of a good winter snow pack and a cool, wet spring and summer. Flows have come down below 400 cfs for the first time all summer and the fish are fat and feisty. Hatches of tricos, caddis, aquatic moths and midge happening on a daily basis and water conditions should only get better and better over the upcoming weeks.

 

Arkansas River - Bighorn Canyon

 

The Arkansas River from Canon City to Salida has finally cleared up again and flows are now very conducive to wading fishing. Hatches of Tricos, Red Quills, and caddis are frequent and the terrestrial action is also heating up. Streamer fishing should kick into high gear again as the browns move into their pre-spawn mentality.

 

Alpine Lakes and Streams of the Sangre de Christo Mountains and Collegiate Peaks

 

Fall is right around the corner, but there's still time to hike or 4x4 into the high country to find some solitude and hungry cutthroats, bows and brookies. There are numerous lakes in these two mountain ranges that offer up some fantastic scenery and fishing. The trout that call these high lakes home know the days are getting shorter and it's time to fatten up before the snow starts to fly. Terrestrials such as ants, beetles and small hoppers are very effective on the high lakes and a handful of attractor dry flies are generally all that's needed in the adjoining small streams.
