Gunnison Fishing Report:
The Gunnison River is clear and fishing has been very productive over the past few days. With these increasingly cold nights fishing has been slower in the mornings and picking up as the water temp rises. Fishng has been good with eggs in the morning until a midday Gray drake and BWO hatch, with some stones and Caddis also on the menu. Nymphing with Trout beads, RS2’s and Two Bit Hookers has been a good bet most of the day. Dry flies have been getting fish too with Parachute Adams size 16-18 and Elk Caddis yellow 16.
Gunnison tip of the week:
The Kokanee Salmon have moved up the valley which presents a unique fishing opportunity. Put some weight on your leader and get down in faster deeper water to find fish on hot sunny days. Go big and bright when targeting salmon. Micky Finns, Red Copper Johns, San Juan Worms, Polar Shrimp and Skunk Green Butts are all viable options. Tie up a long nymph rig and focus on setting up your drift through the deep pools to hook into some KokaneeRemember, lots of big trout have followed the Salmon up-stream. Throw some salmon eggs out there and give yourself a chance to hang some big fish.
Taylor Fishing Report:
The Taylor River catch and release section has been fishing well this week with fish eating Parachute BWO’s, Craven’s Moleflies, Barr’s BWO & PMD Emergers 22, Miller’s D-Midge Grey 20, Pheasant tail 22-24, Mysis Shrimp 18-22. Keep an eye out and target the feeding fish.
Taylor tip of the week:

Craven’s PMD molefly can be deadly at the catch and release. Apply frog’s fanny fly floatant to just the CDC wing of the fly. Fish the molefly 12″ behind a size 18 parachute adams to see your drift.
