Well after being sick for two weeks I walked up the canyon from Pleasure Park to fish the Gunnison River! I started out around 10am with partly cloudy skies and temps around 34 degrees(later reaching the low 40ís and mostly sunny skies)The wind got up to around 6-7 mph.It started out pretty good catching a 18Ē,17 1/2Ē, and two 17 inchers within my first 6 fish all on a 1/4 oz. Black/Golden Brown Marabou Hair Jig(ended up getting 8 fish on it).I caught 14 Browns with the other fish being caught on a 3Ē Dynamic J-Spec in the Bubble Gum color and a couple of fish caught on a #7 Rapala Countdown in the Brown Trout Pattern.
Very nice bharper. We just crossed over the lower Gunny an hour ago coming back from icing Crawford and commented on how clear and fishy it looks. Gotta get up there soon. You seem to do well on the same types of jigs n jerks we have used for many years there. Thanks for another great report. Russ n Karen will be on that stretch with Becky and I as soon as they kick some mycoplasma butt!
Thanks Digginí! I hadnít been that sick in over 25 years! I still have a little cough! Nasty flu out there! In the 3 yrs Iíve fished the canyon up from P.P. the water was one of the clearest days Iíve fished.The water was really high last month and a little difficult to fish! Itís flowing really good now for the types of lures we use! 🎣
