The time has come!

The time has come!

As flows continue to decrease, fishing on the Gunnison is starting to blow up!  Wading deep is still not a recommended option but when the fish are tucked in the edges why would would you!  The river is starting to clear and smaller nymph's and dries are working well.  Frenchies with a chartreuse collar along with smaller yellow stoneflies were the ticket yesterday in the slack water.  You can see the clarity along the edges in this photo.   Swinging soft hackles like the Pheasant tail and Duracell were picking fish up as were the Pat's RL and SJ worm combo.  

The upper section below Almont should be opening soon to commercial boats, we are waiting for the Sheriff to give the word.

The Taylor River is catching a break as flows from the dam have been decreased!! Although fishing has been great and some toads have been reported below the dam, this will help anglers access the rest of the Taylor's famous pocket water and the trophies that roam throughout this gold medal fishery.  Standard tailwater nymphing is still the best way to catch these fish, we are hoping they start looking up for some awesome dry fly action as the water levels subside.  

Swing by or give us a call and get your trips booked asap!  As always we are more than happy to help you DIYers get squared away too.
