On Water Activities
In Buena Vista & Salida, Colorado
The high mountain lake begin to thaw and the creeks begin to flow to fill the mighty Arkansas River. During the spring the fishing is at its absolute best. With the water stored high in the Rockies the gentle run off allows for fly and spin fishing along the banks of the Arkansas River or floating in a raft.
To kick off the whitewater season the annual CKS Paddlefest in Buena Vista takes place on Memorial Day weekend each year. The worlds oldest whitewater festival FIBARK is held Fathers Day weekend in Salida, Colorado.
