May 31 Fishing Report Black Canyon of the Gunnison Gorge

On Saturday the Gunnison River Expeditions fishing guides that came off the river and reported:

Clear water running 651 cfs, water temperature was 48. Nymphing was very productive in the first deep trough off the shallow shelves on the bank. In the afternoon there was a small caddis hatch and provided some dry fly action. Streamers were producing some fish as well. Flies: Nymphs- #18-#16 Prince, #18-#16 Purple Wire Prince, #18-#16 PT's and #10-#6 Stonefly pattern ( produced a few fish, but it helps to get down in the water column quickly). Dry flies- #16-#10 black caddis. Streamers- #10-#6 black leech, #12-#10 olive sculpin. The North Fork is getting its scend peek 2860 cfs and rising and the Gunnison in Grand Junction 4210 cfs today .Over all it was a very productive trip.  We still have some Open Dates in June .
