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.
Josh and Marc did great today on the Taylor River at our Eleven property, the Taylor River Lodge. They both got into a lot of good trout, like these nice rainbows here. It was a fun day!
Peri caught some nice fish this afternoon on the Taylor River. The weather wasn’t nearly as nice as it has been, and a storm was coming in, but fishing was very good. Fishing season is looking good as we spring forward!
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.
It was a nice day today and relatively warm, so I fished up in Taylor Canyon for a bit this afternoon. I got into a lot of fish, including this chunky brown trout here with nice color.
First day on the river for 2016. Spent a couple of hours fishing this afternoon and caught a lot of fish, including this really good brown trout of just over 20 inches here.
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!
The Gunnison River at North Bridge on Christmas Day. Merry Christmas all you trout. I know you’re in there.
The scene out back this morning…20 below zero.
