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.

Yeah Champ, I have been there quite a few times and those guys are real helpful. I bought a new rod and reel there a few months ago. The tailwater has been a good learning experience for me to try. I want to try the resevoir soon also and go try some different streams. Just not sure where to head ffirst....

With runoff I would stick to the tailwaters. 11 Mile Canyon and the Dream Stream. And Deckers if you can find a spot to fish.
11 MC will start to have awesome trico hatches in the morning real soon. Deckers will start popping with caddis, like biblical style hatches of caddis, pretty soon too.
The flows were just bumped up on the Dream Stream and the will hopefully get some fresh fish in the river and maybe a couple of those big boys!

i call P-town home, and I second the Drift, used to be Ark Anglers. Go in and ask for Alex, he is a wealth of info! even if he is not around the other folks there will point you in the right direction. if you want to get into small creeks drive about 30 minutes south west towards CO City, there is a neat little creek you can access up 165 that is super fun to fish once the run off calms down.
