Fished from 9:30 to 3:30. Parked at middle lot and fished up stream. Flow was at 130cfs and slightly stained but overall in great shape. Caught about 30 fish total, mostly browns with a few rainbows mixed in up to 17"-18". Many nice hook-jawed males. Used various beadheads but the real crowd pleaser seemed to be a #12 BHGRHE. Tried a hopper for a while with no takers. Did not fish the lower half. Weather was clear and mid-60's. Got a little windy in the afternoon. Many browns on redds but easy to see and avoid. ~ Todd Hellings -- October 9th, 2014

River was high and off color. No surface activity. Caught on 18-19" brown on size 14 bead head pheasant tail. ~ Tom Foster -- August 11th, 2014

Two of us fished Tomichi for first time, started at 9 and fished until 3 PM when major storm moved into Gunnison Valley. Flows were high and water pretty murky from lots of recent rain. Tried just about everything in the fly book but only trout landed were on red San Juans. Fish wouldn't take pink/brown worms of the flashy sparkle ones, only red with beadhead. Fished from lower boundary up to house in am, had lunch then drove to upstream parking area and walked back down to red house to fish up. Great creek to fish with long runs and many deep pools. All caught were healthy browns up to 17 inches and one feisty rainbow. ~ mwooster -- August 12th, 2013

Three of us fished this property for the first time under supreme Fall weather conditions for everything, except perhaps fishing. Flow as about 30 cfs leaving much of creek very shallow. Ed and I landed eight between us on prince nymphs, while Barry from Minnesota had a field day landing 22 on his BH prince nymph. Average size was probably less than 6" but a few decent browns were landed. Very mossy bottom. Streamers, other nymphs and dries were unproductive. We worked hard, but had a blast! The fish showed a distinct preference for flies recklessely tied on worn tippet material, museum-quality tarnished brass beads and red flashabou ribbing dangling exactly one hook shank length from the abodmen:( An excellent property with a ton of beautiful water! Thanks for the opportunity! ~ S. Knopp -- October 7th, 2012

Two of us fished the entire stretch. Water was off color after couple rainy days - floating lots of foam. Marginal, but we fished it anyway. Could not get anything to take any dries or nymphs. Ended up using olive/black buggers. Caught total of 15 with 4-5 over 12 inches. Biggest brown was about 15 and one rainbow about the same. Did lose two much larger ones. Saw few Redds. ~ Walt -- September 29th, 2012
