Colorado Fall Fishing, Monarch and Salida Colorado Lodging

Colorado Fall Fishing - Ski Town Condos Vacation Rentals, your Monarch and Salida Colorado Lodging Choice!



Autumn traditionally provides Colorado anglers with some of the year's best fishing: Stream and lake waters clear up; summertime crowds disappear; hillsides are covered with amber and rust-colored leaves; and when temperatures drop, several varieties of trout rise from their shady depths to begin fattening themselves on mayflies flitting on surface waters.

North Texas e-News roving reporter Allen Rich,  photo by Cindy Skelton



Photo of Greg Felt, owner Ark Anglers
Autumn on the Arkansas!  From Ark Anglers, Greg Felt:
We’re excited about the next 60 days! Flows ought to be a little higher than recent years, probably holding in the low 400s, and allowing for quality wade and float fishing. This is the upper end of the optimal range for brown trout and provides maximum useful habitat at a current velocity that allows them to thrive.   For information on guided trips or to simply check conditions in Chaffee County, call Ark Anglers at 719-539-4223 or email greg@arkanglers.com.

Broad-Tailed Humming Birds, Monarch and Salida Colorado Lodging

 Humming birds are in abundance in the high country, very enjoyable to watch while sitting on the deck at Ski Town Condos.   Hummingbirds are the only birds with the ability to fly backward; will chatter or buzz to communicate; flap their wings about 80 times per seconds.


All About Birds:  A hummingbird of subalpine meadows, the Broad-tailed Hummingbird ranges across the south-central Rockies in summer. It possesses a number of physiological and behavioral adaptations to survive cold nights, including the ability to enter torpor, slowing its heart rate and dropping its body temperature.
