Arkansas River

Half-Day

Walk and Wade

We teamed with Royal Gorge Anglers, the oldest Fly Fishing Guide Service on the Arkansas River, so you can fish the Longest Gold Medal River in North America! Their guides will expose you to a good portion of the 102 mile gold medal section in a Half Day Trip with the goal of instructing and leaving you with an improved skill set, while getting you hooked up on your fair share. The famed BWO and Caddis hatches on the Arkansas are second to none for some phenomenal Spring fishing, while the Dry Fly and Streamer action is outstanding in the Summer and Fall. The half day guided walk & wade fly fishing tour on the Arkansas River is Royal Gorge Angler’s most popular option. You won’t be disappointed in the amount of water and trout you will see on this great short session!

Educated us on becoming better fisherman.

★★★★★
Cody did an excellent job taking us down the Arkansas River late in the season during low flows. Cody made sure that we had the right flies on throughout the trip to give us the best shot at getting hits, and educated us on becoming better fisherman to our request. His ability to maneuver the boat around the stream allowed us to focus more on the fishing instead of looking for rocks.

I took my son and I on our first fly fishing experience and Arkansas River Tours did an amazing job teaching us the river currents, how to cast and how to land some fish!
