Fishing

 Printable Version

The Arkansas River has exceptional public fishing access and boasts a 102 mile segment of Gold Medal Waters. In 2014 the Colorado Division of Wildlife bestowed the designation on the stretch of the Arkansas River beginning at the confluence with the Lake Fork of the Arkansas, near Leadville, to Parkdale, near the Royal Gorge. This is the longest single stretch of Gold Medal Waters in the state!  Home to some of the best trout fishing in Fourteener Country the Arkansas River boasts a native brown trout and a growing rainbow trout population. In addition to the many miles of excellent fishing along the Arkansas River there are also over 200 miles of stream fishing and hundreds of high alpine lakes.
