Have you fished Hayden Meadows on the Ark? It up by Leadville and like it’s name is winding through big meadows. Very unlike the rest of the Ark that has huge boulders, fast flows, and is waiting to kill you. Hayden Meadows is much easier fishing with much lower flows and no boulders. Because of the lower flows the fish are a good size too.
I was thinking we could meat there next season and go fishing. Let’s wait until summer when the hoppers and caddis are active. That will be a shorter drive for you instead of coming to Buena Vista and it’s only 25 miles for me. I was planning to fish up there a lot next year. It’s much nicer fishing than around me depending on flows.
