Gunnison County is warm, and so is the water. Most of the Gunnison downstream from town to the reservoir is not the ideal place to be fishing currently due to the temperatures of the river. If you are planning on spending some time there, bring swim trunks and some cold beverages to keep the day fun. Fishing is mainly reserved for the morning session till about noon or so, and once water temperatures reach mid to upper 60s and even the 70s it is time to give the fish a break! If you really want to fish stick to the dam water release options such as the Taylor below Taylor Dam or the Gunny at Pine Creek or Morrow Point, given this water will generally run colder for longer.

The Ultimate Fly Fishing Report
Casting a fly in a tranquil mountain stream, feeling the tug on the line, and holding a beautiful rainbow trout makes us feel alive and intensely connected with nature. Fly fishing is our way of life and we are blessed with hundreds of nearby rivers and streams just a short distance away from Boulder. From the swift spring waters of the Clear Creek to the meandering bends of the South Platte, it's critical to consider fishing conditions in advance and prepare accordingly. We rely on our experienced guides who venture into the wild to let us know which rivers favor fly fishing, where fish are biting, and which fly patterns are most effective. Planning a successful fishing trip also requires knowledge of stream flows at various river points and an accurate weather forecast for a given destination. At Rocky Mountain Anglers, we are dedicated to providing all avid anglers with detailed and timely information about hatches, water, and weather conditions. So before you head out the door on your next fishing adventure, visit our web site to find valuable information that will prepare you for a successful trip. Have fun chasing after your next trophy trout and enjoy nature's beauty!The Rocky Mountain Anglers Crew
