Salida and Monarch, Colorado offers abundant fall fishing opportunities with some of the year’s best fishing. Stream and river waters clear up; summertime crowds disappear; beautiful fall scenery; and when temperatures drop, several varieties of trout rise from their shady depths to begin fattening themselves on mayflies flitting on surface waters.
