1. One More: Check out this trippy two toned Brown I caught today! I’ve seen a lot of Browns either dark or lighter but never like this one!

    1. Arthur- 👍 One of the oddest features I’ve seen on a Trout!
    2. Mount that sucker

      Lol! When I rest my phone on my backpack and set the timer it’s all about getting the fish photo centered! 👍Pretty happy especially considering that I caught ...more a decent Bow in this predominantly Brown filled section of the River! There are a few really nice sized Bows(20-24”+) but they’re usually caught on real small midges by the fly guys! My friend caught a 22 1/2” Bow on 1/16 oz Black Crappie Jig! My biggest Bow in this section is only 20”!

  3. I fished the Gunnison River today landing 31 Trout all Browns except 1 decent Bow! I caught most of the fish using a 1/8 oz Marabou Hair Jig in a Black/Golden Brown ...more Combo with a little flash antennas! Here’s my best fish of the day a 19” Brown!

      Thanks everyone! I was throwing the Hair Jig with my ultralight rod which really makes landing anything more enjoyable!

  4. Here’s Chet’s 22+” Bow he caught yesterday on a Black Crappie Jig! Not the best selfie but I was down River from him when he caught it so we couldn’t get a good ...more picture to truly show how nice it was!

  5. Nice day but a little chilly on the River today! My friend Chet caught a 22 1/2” Bow but I was down river and he didn’t get a good pic! If he posts it I’ll share ...more it on here! We both ended up with over 20 Trout despite the 30 degree temps!

      Thx Morris! Pretty good fishing activity for this time of year!
    2. Nice Brown Bryan!!
    3. Bryan Harper 0
      Thx Chad! These are gold metal waters so if you don’t catch them here you’re having a horrible day! The only thing about gold metal waters is there’s lots of fish ...more 14-16” but we have been averaging 15-17” so far this year.
    4. Chad Jaco 0
      Nice brown Bryan !! This time of year I'm happy if I atleast catch one. You guys are hammering them.

  7. I fished the Gunnison River for the first time in three weeks.The day started off really slow until I hooked the first fish of the day an approximate 18” Rainbow ...more but lost it three feet from shore! Then after Noon the fishing picked up especially between 2-5 pm! I ended up landing 28 fish which included two nice 18” Browns and the best fish of the day an 18” Rainbow! I caught all but two fish on a #7 Rapala Countdown in the Hot Mustard Muddler Pattern! Here’s the Bow

  8. Went to check the Gunnison River to see if it was fishable after the recent snow storms and below zero overnight temps! The water almost looks like it’s boiling ...more in the picture because of the cold temps and shallow riffles! Brrr! It might be a few days before I get back out! It’s been over two weeks and I’m already chomping at the bit!

  9. My best Trout of 2018! 25 1/2” 6.1 lbs caught using a Dynamic J-Spec Jerkbait in the Fire Craw Pattern! My biggest fish to date using a Jerkbait.
