Pueblo is NOT iced. Neither is the Arkansas river that flows through Pueblo. Both are decent bets for fishing. Another month and Pueblo is gonna be HOPPIN ;)

Welcome to this crazy place. If I may ask.............why Pueblo or Stanley? Do you mean Standley? Have you heard of these place prior to arriving in Colorado? Just curious.....

Re: New to Colorado
i just heard some people talk about them. im pretty sure its stanley res. its right up in the mountains behind the academy so its just closer.

The air force academy?

If I am not mistaken....Standley is quite a ways from Colorado Springs. You are better off with Pueblo, 11mile, Spinney, or Antero if you are located in Colorado springs.

Re: New to Colorado
You bet. Pueblo is starting to heat up....but it will be a little while....not long though.

11mile, Antero, and Spinney are all losing ice fast with all this hot weather. I would imagine it won't be long for them either. Lots of good fishing a little west of CO springs.
