Default Re: Arkansas River

Well, what a fun trip we had Saturday. We got down there about 8am and it was fairly cold. We were on the Nature Center side and didn't catch anything for the first couple hours. We warmed up in the truck for a bit and decided to go closer to the dam. By that time it was pretty nice out and there were more fishermen out so we had to walk a ways down stream.

I took my father and he wanted to try fly fishing for the first time. (Never thought I'd be able to teach him something ) I tied on a Parachute Adams and a copper John. We hit a very slow moving portion of the river but it was a deep pool. Once we got set up, we couldn't stop catching fish. Even though all of them were only in the 8-10" range (some being around 12") we must have caught about 30-40 fish. My father was able to catch some fish and now I think he wants to start doing more fly fishing.

Thanks for all the advice from everyone on here. You guys have helped me a lot!
