Arkansas River in Prime Condition
I spent today prowling the banks of the Arkansas below Salida looking for large rising rainbows. When I found one I cold generally get him to eat a size 16 BWO with an accurate cast. I found one fish that might have gone 25 to 27 inches but, I couldn’t get him to eat. about every five minbutes he would come up an take something right in the film. I got refusal after refusal but it was a gas. I probably spend an hour or so on this one fish. Unfortunately, I forgot by large box of small dry flies. I would probably still be there had I brought it along.
