Winter & Spring Fishing

Nov/Dec/Jan: Bring on mid-winter conditions as we fish the Taylor River for some of the largest fish in the state. (Note: although the elevation is 9000 feet we fish the area all year). Some days can be quite cold, yet we often get very comfortable days in which we take full advantage.

Feb/Mar/Apr: Days are getting longer and the fishing heats up incredibly. Nymph fishing for agressively feeding Rainbows and Browns on the Gunnison and East Rivers can be the best nymphing of the year. The fish are on the take after a sluggish winter as water temperatures are reaching levels conducive for feeding trout. This is pre-runoff fishing and it can be great.
