Default Re: Eleveen Mile Canyon, Colorado April 1st-5th whats the snow like?

I live in the north central part of Kansas have thought about going to Arkansas sometime but have never been there this will be my 7th time to Eleven Mile Canyon. I am some what familiar with that area so I'm not learning an area over again. I have fished below Spinney but that was once right below the dam once at the bridge and have fished the lake once and once above the lake. Also fished the Arkansas a couple of times I like it but am not very familiar with it the time I fished around Coaldale we did pretty decent but last year that was all muddy had to stay upstream from Salida might try the Arkansas again this year depending on what happens. Last year while we where there in April once u got to Lake George the S. Platte river was seriously muddy and up it sucked tried to fish Happy Meadow but couldn't catch anything same deal with up by Hartsel.

As far as freezing I don't mind the cold nights I got a decent sleeping bag. And the nights always seem to be freezing when I am there; been there in beginning of April, beginning of June, and the beginning of August a couple of times nights are always cold.

Few days off from work and away from the wife always going to be a good trip; a few pulls on the rod will just top it all off. Would like to try and get another pike this year though got one last year that was some fun.....
