Colorado Stream Update: Caddis, Caddis, Caddis

Current Conditions at Arkansas:

The upper stretches of the Ark are fishing well with the lower Ark seeing lots of water. Between Leadville and Twin Lakes we have been seeing lots of Caddis and the fishing has been great on the warmer days. Try droppers with an elk hair caddis have been fooling a lot of fish. Crowds have been busy on the weekends so try to get out during the week.

The fishing is good.  Partly Cloudy skies and 56-59 degree weather. The water temperature was between 48-51 degrees and Slightly Off.
