Arkansas River – Wellsville – Big Sheep Canyon

Arkansas River between Howard and Parkdale is known as Bighorn Sheep Canyon. Most of this section is public and clearly marked, but it is still best to be sure you are fishing public water. The entire section runs along highway 50 on the southside of the river and railroad on the northside. This makes walk and wading difficult and a wading staff is strongly recommended. The gauging station for this area is know a Wellsville.
