Re: New or at least returning fisher....
The Pueblo Tailwater of the Arkansas River has turned into one of the best urban fisheries anywhere around. Big fish, new stream improvements, C&R and flies/lures only regs in place. Good stuff. Check out the Drift Fly Shop on HWY 50 behind the Carl's Jr. they are dialed in and can get you going on both warm/cold water.
