Detailed Description:

Warm weather throughout February has opened up all of the ice on the Gunnison and there are fishing opportunities from Almont down to the lake. Nymphing will be the most effective way to entice fish this time of year however on warmer, sunny days a midge hatch is quite possible bringing fish to the surface. The best fishing time will be midday when temperatures are warmest.
