Welcome to spring in the valley!! Folks have been hitting the rivers as the shelf ice is no longer a factor on our major rivers and the fish are hungry!! Guide Gibby spent some time on the lower section of the upper Gunny and had good luck with several different patterns, including a grey soft hackle behind a SJ worm and a peacock thin mint.
On the Cochetopa he caught fish on red SJ worms and purple perdigons. The browns were also actively chasing Galloups Dungeons in olive. The Coch was "Like chocolate milk with a surface temp of 40"! So far the Gunnison is running in the 300's and clear. The Taylor is open and fishing well but there will be snow in the canyon still.
We will open full time for the 2022 season on April 16th so swing in and say hello!!
