THREE RIVERS WINTER FLY FISHING REPORT
As of late November, most people are nymph fishing the deeper pools, especially from MM 9-17 on the Upper Taylor River. Also, fishing can be productive on the Taylor River by the Post Office, Gunnison Mountain Park, MM 8-17 and of course the Catch and Release (C&R) area below the dam. On the Gunnison River, try from the confluence in Almont to just downstream of MM 9 and west of Gunnison from Neversink to Wilson’s Landing.
