Stormy Monday

We have clouds and rain moving into the valley this week, and it is much colder. Fishing was slow for us on the Gunnison River today, but Rob got this nice brown trout on a big stonefly nymph early.Brown Trout

It was another beautiful day today, and a lot like August and not September. We’re still getting good fish on dry flies, like this nice brown trout Debbie got here on a Royal Stimulator.Brown Trout

Dry Fly Fishing

I had a lot of fun these past couple of days with the Jersey Boys, John and Tom. We had a great day of dry fly fishing today and the guys landed some really nice wild trout like this beautiful brown John caught here.

Hopper Fishing

It was a bright and sunny day today, with no real bug activity, but we got some good fish to look up at hoppers and stimulators. Jack landed this nice brown after it attacked his hopper.Hopper Fishing

Salmon

September has arrived and so have the salmon. There doesn’t seem to be very many around yet, but we found a few today on the Gunnison River. They really made us work, but Debbie hung in there and landed this HUGE male. She did a great job fighting the fish out of the current and into the net.Salmon

Guides’ Day Off on the East River

Chris and I fished the East River today and had a pretty good BWO hatch throughout the day. Chris landed this nice 17-inch cutbow (and many other fish) on a small dry fly.East River Cutbow

Taylor River

I fished the Taylor River today for a few hours in the afternoon, down in the canyon stretch and also up at the C&R section. I threw a single dry fly with my bamboo rod the whole time. Fish were hungry and had no fear. It made for an excellent day!Taylor River C&R Cutbow
