River Conditions

Arkansas River

Updated: February 9, 2018

Buena Vista Area flow: ~100 CFS

We aren’t in the peak season for fly fishing the Arkansas River near Buena Vista. The river is frozen in places and temps are below freezing. The fish aren’t very active in the area, but if you keep heading south to Salida, you may find better conditions for winter fly fishing.

Blue River

Updated: February 9, 2018

Upper Blue: below the dam – 95 cfs

The Blue River below the Dillon Reservoir is a popular winter fly fishing destination because it is easily accessible and typically good year-round. While you can easily get to the river behind the outlets in Silverthorne, if you head north a bit towards Green Mountain Reservoir, you will avoid the crowds.

Flies: Mysis shrimp, BWOs, Midge larvea
