The temperature in nearby Canon City hit 75 degrees Thursday and Welles said he couldn't pass up the chance to get on the river. He said he lives in Canon City and fishes the Arkansas year-round.

The Palmer Land Trust and fly shop Angler's Covey are joining together to host a fundraiser for protection of small streams in the Pikes Peak region. They will hold Pint Night July 26, from 5:30 to 8 p.m.
at Colorado Mountain Brewery, 295 S. 21st St. Land trust conservationists will be on-hand to discuss current initiatives, and the fishing experts from Angler's Covey will be with fishing tips and information on the best spots in the region. And there will be beer. The "suggested donation" is $1 for the first pint and $5 for each additional pint, which will go toward the land trust's efforts to protect streams. It's free and open to the public. Register at www.palmerlandtrust.org.
