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

Flow on the Gunnison River had been quite low all summer and on this day it was about 150-200 cfs. As a result this stretch of the river had not been floated since early summer and the fish had seen little pressure but were quite hungry. We went down to one of the deepest pools near the lower end of the property. This was the only spot were we could see kokanee salmon hanging out and used and egg pattern trailed by a beadhead pheasant tail and prince nymph. Caught numerous rainbows using this rig and a couple of salmon as well, and one or two browns. The upper riffles which had no more than a foot of water also yielded some bows. After about 2 hrs. of fishing we were blown out by a thunderstorm and retreated back to our cabin on the Taylor River north of Almont. ~ Steve R -- October 6th, 2012
