Fishing on the Upper Arkansas River

Awesome views of the Arkansas River at River Run Inn Bed and Breakfast, Salida Colorado in the heart of the Rocky Mountains

The Upper Arkansas River offers world class flyfishing.  While brown trout make up 90% of the river's trout population, rainbows bred from wild fish give anglers a colorful occasional treat.  Nearby mountain lakes and streams are home to Greenback Cutthroats.  April and May bring "blizzards" to the river in the form of baetis and caddis hatches.

River Run Inn sits on the river three miles northwest of downtown Salida.  The Inn has 1/8 mile of private access and is adjacent to miles of public land and lease access.  Within walking distance is a stocked pond perfect for practice.  Short drives take anglers to nearby mountain lakes and streams.Truly good fishing and good catching!


Maps of local favorite spots along with lists of local guides and float fishing companies are available to River Run Inn guests.  Get a group together for a clinic or special trip and stay in the dorm or rent the entire inn at a special rate.  Connect with any of he links below to plan your funfilled adventure or call 1-800-385-6925 for assistance with arrangements.

Ark Anglers

When people think of fly-fishing in Colorado, they picture floating a wild freestone river, walking a high meadow stream, casting to cruising cutthroats at timberline, or landing unexpectedly large rainbows within a cast of their guest ranch cabin. They hope for success, be that two fish, twenty, or maybe just the pleasure of leaving the world behind for a day and learning some new skills. And they crave solitude, the chance to share the river with a friend or two, a companionable guide, and the fish. Call Ark Anglers and let us schedule your dream fishing trip!

Land Big Fish

There are ways of getting a crash course on a new lake and learning the local's secrets to help when you have a tournament or are just going fishing. First get on the internet and search for fishing reports or chat rooms where you can get general information on fishing spots from anglers already fishing the lake. Don't just check the current reports, check as far back as you can. Start your search here at Land Big Fish website.
