Upper Gunnison River - Central CO Rockies

Tip of the week 

High water is here, fish heavy nymph rigs in softer water and near edges. San Juan worms and stonefly patterns will do the trick better than anything else.

Seven-day forecast 

Runoff conditions have started, and won't be going anywhere for at least a few weeks. Look for windows of cold weather in the forecast and try to plan your fishing around them, as the river may clear up and drop a bit. Make sure to call us at the shop for current conditions, or book a walk wade trip with us to explore some of the other wonderful options the Gunnison Valley has to offer!
