Where to Go Arkansas River – Canyon City

The river through Canon City has been greatly enhanced recently with the addition of rock structures to provide better trout habitat. A pleasant hike and bike trail parallels the river from the 4th St. Bridge downstream for several miles. This can provide a nice option for a low commitment day of fishing. If you grow weary of chucking bugs you can pop into a restaurant for a meal. The usual Arkansas diet of stones and baetis nymphs should serve you well here. Hike in access to the river can be found just west of town for the more adventurous fisherman.
