Fall Trip into the Gunnison Gorge!!!

September 14, 2012
The Gunnison Gorge Conservation Area is a unique part of the Gunnison River directly downstream of Black Canyon National Park near Hotchkiss Colorado.   This area is remote and can be accessed on a number of trails leading from the Canyon rim to the river bottom.  On September 11th Dragonfly guides and clients took a two day one night self supported trip into the Ute Park area.  This high desert environment is contrasted by the lush canyon bottom of the Gunnison River and produces some great rainbow and brown trout fishing.  Our recent trip was highlighted with several nice rainbows and browns like the one seen above.  On the day of our scheduled trip mother nature decided to throw us a curve ball and produced rain and storms for better part of half of the trip.  Our clients were tough and fished through the weather and saw some great fish!  The clouds helped us a lot with the fish staying active as long as the clouds were hanging around.  The fishing in the Canyon is excellent and makes for a great Fall adventure!!!

The East River is Hot!

April 4, 2011
You want spring fishing? Come to Dragonfly Anglers.

Check out this photo from a recent trip with Rod on the East River. The river was in perfect shape and the fish were eating.

Yes, you should be freaking out right now – this monster and several others like it were all caught on dry flies! Dry Flies!!!

Midge patterns were the order of the day. I am sure that you could have picked up plenty of fish nymphing, but why would you when you could be landing a beautiful bruiser of a brown trout on a dry fly?

Call the shop for information on booking a trip. The return of wintery weather in the valley means that the water is going to stay low and fishable just that much longer. Get out there and wet a line!!
