Spring Fishing

We got a nice break from recent winter storms and had a beautiful day up in the Taylor Canyon yesterday. Mac and his son Matt spent the day at Taylor River Lodge catching rainbows, cutbows, cutthroat, and brown trout. The fish made us work, but the guys did really well.

Ice-Off

We have had some warm weather recently, and a lot of ice has come off the rivers. Fishing is very good right now and should continue to improve until runoff. This photo below was taken today on the Taylor River, at the new Eleven property where I work, the Taylor River Lodge. It’s a beautiful stretch of river full of very big fish. The trout looked nice and healthy today.

Deep Freeze

The Gunnison Valley has been in a deep freeze after the recent snow storms. It got down to 32 below zero yesterday morning. The snow is good news for skiers and also for the rivers come spring. The ski resort in Crested Butte is reporting a 5-foot base. The snowpack in the high country is looking good so far. Looking forward to a warm-up though!
