I am a teacher and get off for the summer after memorial day. I am thinking about taking a week camping/fishing trip at the end of may and was hoping to get some tips on a place to go. I live in colorado springs but am willing to drive 5 hours or so...looking to avoid run off, catch some nice fish and see some beautiful areas.

Well, I bet the Ark is really flowing in a couple weeks. Considering the time of year, I'd look at tailwater areas like Elevenmile, maybe other sections of the S. Platte, Taylor River, Fryingpan, etc. Also check out all the stillwater opportunities until the runoff is done -- maybe July for the Ark. Ask at your local fly shop and watch the flow levels online.

I was on the Ark. by Salida on the 8th and 9th, and the river was already high compared to last year (so the locals said). The river will probably be pretty blown out by the end of May, like D-Moe said.
