Hopper Season Has Arrived on the Arkansas River!
Here is the local fishing report brought to you by Tim Hill of Colorado Fly Fishing Guides located in downtown Leadville:
Upper Arkansas River (Between Buena Vista and Leadville) –Good news – although there will be some ongoing work on the banks, the work in the river for the Upper Arkansas River Aquatic Habitat Improvement Project is over, so water clarity in the meadows should be fishable throughout the rest of the season.
Hopper season has arrived on the Upper Arkansas River! Hopper/dropper rigs are taking fish with regularity. Dave’, Joe’s, and Parachute hopper patterns are working on top and a variety of your usual suspects as a dropper should be added to your rig to increase your hook up rate. Judging from the snow on the local 14ers, fall is quickly approaching, so get out there while the getting is good!
