The fishing on the Arkansas River Pueblo is picking up! The Blue Winged Olive hatch continues along with midges and a few caddis. The fishing is best in the mornings and gradually tapers off as the afternoon progresses. Small mayfly and Baetis (Blue Winged Olive) nymph and emergers are the best flies in the morning. Midge larva and small caddis larva are also good choices as a point fly. Look for fish in the shallow water and at the heads of riffles and runs. People are beginning to make the trek south to Pueblo. There were several anglers on the river and moving around is the key to success. Do not be afraid to leave a hole and let it rest. The fish will come back and feed after and hour or so.
