Things are looking up, well, coming up. Currently the Gunnison in town is running between 867 at the whitewater park and 882 just west of there at county road 32. Fish can still be found though. Dredge the bottom with streamers and bigger bugs. Large black or darker colored stoneflies along with egg and worm patterns bounced on the bottom along the edges and in pocket water will produce fish. If you are floating, slap those big ugly streamers along the banks and pocket water as well, the fish are going to doing their best to stay out of the current.

The Taylor is running 140 below the dam and 222 by the time it reaches Almont. Smaller midge patterns up high along with Mysis and scuds, long leaders and small or no indicators. Elsewhere on the Taylor make sure you flip some rocks and match the size and color of the stoneflies. You may also see some midge clusters floating around, make sure to use those small dry midge patterns and watch for BWO's when the clouds start to gather.

The smaller creeks are high and dirty. Bigger bugs and worms will be the ticket while the water is up.
