Upper Gunnison River - Central CO Rockies

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Nymphing and Streamers early until the hatch starts midday when a dry/dropper can produce. Kokanee Salmon are in the river and will eat attractor patterns such as Mickey Finns, Theo's Bombers, and San Juan Worms, as well as size 18-20 flashback nymphs.

Seven-day forecast 

Blue Wings and Midges will remain the bulk of the trout diet this week. Fishing small in the size 20-24 range will be your best bet whether it be dry flies or nymphing. Egg patterns can also produce some trout right now especially behind pods of Kokanee.
