My friend Jeff and I arrived at the property around 10am, under blue skies and temperatures in the low 70s. Making our way to the water was reasonably straightforward although one has to climb over 3 stepladders. With much effort, we made our way downstream to fish a couple of the nicer sections of the river on this property. We both landed about half a dozen fish of moderate size, all on nymphs. We had the most success on copper johns and RS2. There was no activity on top to speak of. We tried to make our way upstream in the afternoon but gave up pretty quickly. After a few hours of bush whacking with no good holes in sight, we decided to call it a day. It is very important to note that this property is not for everyone as it takes quite a bit of effort to navigate the shoreline. Although the Gunnison was running at about 500cfs, we decided against crossing as it was too dangerous. That said, access did look better on the opposite side. ~ Fabrice -- September 25th, 2014

Gunnison River Larger water here. Several combinations were used without much success on upper stretch. Only one Rainbow and one Brown were taken- each about 12". Thunder and rain at mid -day caused temporary stop, but back on till sundown. We woulb probably start on lower end next time. ~ john Naill -- September 24th, 2013

First time fishing this excellent property with a buddy. Flows were still high, just over 600 cfs. Found large and healthy fish within 10 feet of the bank. Tried a selection of nymphs but all fish were caught on Pat's Rubber Legs/girdle bug in black/orange. We did catch one nice rainbow on a San Juan. Fished from 9-2 and had to quit after buddy broke his rod on said rainbow. Landed a couple of browns over 15 inches. Only challenge here was finding property boundary on downstream end, did not see any RMA sign to indicate it. Would definately fish here again! ~ mwooster -- August 12th, 2013

Fished a half day in the afternoon and fishing was a little slow on the Gunny. Water was a little off color and higher than it had been a few weeks prior when I was there, due to the recent rains they had received. Caught fish on 20 inchers, epoxy stones and PT's. Also, had a few fish hit on top on olive Stimulators. Caught Bows and Browns up to 15". ~ J Stringer -- May 8th, 2013

Three of us fished this property for the first time from about 10:30am to dusk and landed 30 fish total. Bright sunny Fall weather and very low flow (122 cfs) made for challenging condititons but fish were had if you worked for them. Most caught in riffles on red CJ, while fish landed from deeper runs nabbed a #20 sparkle RS2. A couple of well earned nice browns were fooled by a #20 CDC compara dun on top. Largest was 18" rainbow, with a couple of browns of about 14". All the rest ranged from 6" to 12". Great day, great property and enjoyed watching the three sets of massive antlers keeping tabs on us. ~ S. Knopp -- October 7th, 2012
