Tip of the week 

this winter season it most likely will be iced over until late March

Seven-day forecast 

Try nymphing, Egg patterns can produce some trout right now especially behind pods of spawning Browns.


The Gunnison River is currently flowing at 265 cfs through the town stretch. Water is low and clear. With warm afternoons and some snow-melt, the deeper holes will get off-color. Fishing has been good, especially nymphing. There have been some small midge and BWO hatches during the afternoons.
