Black Canyon of the Gunnison Holiday Fishing Blog

Happy Holidays to all of our terrific friends and followers! We wish you a safe and peaceful season and look forward to seeing you in 2011. Check our availability on our website and book your trip soon!

With the warm weather in SW CO – mid 30s to high 40s – the streaming fishing has been incredible with the bread and butter white streamer. Due to the recent rain & snowfall, the lower Gunnison is off-color at the moment but will clear when we get some colder weather.

The small midges and micro-mays are still fishing well. With these ideal temps it’s overall a fantastic fishing for this time of year – 30 fish a day.  See our website for more fishing info:  https://www.gunnisonriverexpeditions.com/

North Rim Hunt Club

Right now, the pheasant and Chukar hunting are great. The first snowfall didn’t do anything to hurt the cover. The tall wheat grass is holding the birds well – ideal for upland bird hunting with the warm temps and no snow.  We’ve had several groups for either a morning or afternoon hunt, then filling in with duck hunts. We had a great goose hunt last weekend in Delta, with 4 flights of geese coming into our spread with good success. Most of the ducks have moved back into open water – pond and lakes – because of the warm weather. We’ll be back on the river as soon as we get another cold snap.

Let us know if you’re interested in an upland hunt.

North Rim Trophy Hunts

 We’re off to several outdoors shows in January. Get over to the ISE at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver on Jan. 6 – 9. Please stop by our booth and say hello.
