Fishing Report For the Arkansas Tailwater


Arkansas Tailwater Pueblo Fishing Report 

Shop Summer Clearance

Arkansas Tailwater below Pueblo Reservoir


General Overview

 Flows have finally been stepped down to typical flows for the Tailwater for this time period, and clarity should really come back in a hurry over the next few days. It's been a long summer without any real opportunities to wade the Tailwater, so this flow reduction is coming as a major relief, and fishing should really fire up on this section as a result of almost zero pressure for the last 3-4 months.

We hold the oldest permit on the Arkansas Tailwater. Ready to pre-book a post-runoff trip on the Tailwater? Call Us Toll Free (888) 994-6743 to book your guide today!


Stream Conditions

Above Pueblo Flowrate: 310 CFS

Clarity: Slightly Stained...3Plus feet


Suggested Methods

 As the river drops a lot of the fish will move from the edges to structure in the middle again, so focus on those areas with relatively heavy nymph rigs. As flows drop more, fish will spread out more and get picky.
