The Main summer insect hatches have made their way through the Gunnison drainage, but we are still experiencing good bug activity  on many of our creeks and rivers.  This is an excellent time to start fishing terrestrials ( grasshoppers, ants, beetles).  You can also find BWO’s hatching mid day on the Gunnison and Taylor rivers.
