Early May is the time of the year that the Caddis Hatch reaches the Salida area of the Arkansas River. Anglers from far and wide descend upon the river to test their skills at fooling trout with a caddis fly imitation.
Enjoy a chance to score big on some terrific guided fishing trips, high quality gear, artwork, and more. Collegiate Peaks Anglers is one of the top Trout Unlimited Chapters in the nation and has been recognized as such with many state and national awards.
The Caddis Festival Banquet and Auction is the chapter's primary fund raiser of the year. Proceeds benefit the community through the funding habitat improvement projects, youth education, college scholarships, kid's fishing derbies, access improvement, etc.
