It’s been a big snow year so far, with lots of storms rolling in off the west coast and slamming the Sierras and the Rockies. I have never seen so much snow in Gunnison. Needless to say, I have not fished in a long time, since Thanksgiving actually. The photo below is from an avalanche at the Taylor River C&R section. The county had to clear it out and this photo got passed around shortly after, which was around mid January or so. The Taylor Canyon road was actually closed several miles below the C&R for quite a while. I don’t know what this means for runoff yet, but I would plan on big water this season.
Conway Bowman and his film crew paid us a visit at Taylor River Lodge this season and filmed several days of fishing in our area. You can view video clips and photos from the episode on The Outfitters website here. Eleven guides Ian Havlick and Colleen Farrell are featured throughout.
Had a very nice afternoon on the Gunnison River today. Great way to spend part of Thanksgiving Day!
Enjoying the nice fall weather while it lasts!
Peri had a great day on the Taylor River yesterday. She landed a lot of nice fish, including this big rainbow here.
Good fall fishing continues with the warm weather we’re having. It’s still in the 50s and 60s here, which is way above normal.
Had another nice day on the river with temps in the 50s and 60s. Got some nice rainbows during the middle part of the day. Great photo Matt!
You can get some nice rainbows on egg patterns during fall when they get in behind spawning brown trout and feed on eggs.
Fished the East River with Elliot and Matt this afternoon and had a great time. They both caught a lot of fish, including this nice brown Elliot landed toward the end of the day.
Marc with a nice fish on the Taylor River at our Taylor River Lodge. Fun afternoon!
