Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area Offers Late Summer River Fun

CPW press release
SALIDA, Colo. - Flows on the Arkansas River within the Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area (AHRA) are subsiding to late summer levels, but the river still has plenty of great water for visitors interested in boating and angling adventures in the beautiful Colorado sunshine in one of the nationís premier recreation areas.

Individuals and families alike will enjoy Bighorn Sheep Canyon where one can still find mild to moderate whitewater experiences. And, the fishing at this time of the year is simply fantastic! In addition, kayakers will find the upper river stretches, such as the Numbers, both challenging and fun for an end-of-the-year excursion. Browns Canyon offers unbeatable scenery for boaters, anglers and those who enjoy a less crowded camping experience during this time of the year.

You will discover that it is never too late to enjoy the Arkansas Riverís gentle flows for an end of season get-away beneath towering mountains and impressive canyon walls. AHRAís campgrounds are all open for an autumn outing for the entire family Ė think campfires, marshmallows and crisp mountain air.
