Where does the Arkansas River stand today?
It is the best it has ever been. The Gold Medal status for 10 years tells you the quality of the water is exceptional right now.The other thing that has really helped is we have a voluntary flow program which does not let the river go below certain flows levels during the year and doing so protects the breeding areas of the fish – so they do not dry out.They also try to limit when the spring release comes as far as run off. If they hold it off until May or the third week in May, this lets the Rainbows spawn in the spring without the risk of them being washed away. The flow program also benefits us from the recreational rafting side as from the first of July through the middle of August they try to keep the flow at 700 cfs – to help river rafting. The Arkansas River is Excellent Gold Medal Trout fishing – Browns, Rainbows, Cutthroats | Fly and Spin fishing – Fresh water
