Fly Fishing on the Gunnison River
Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Lodge
The largest and most experienced outfitter in the Black Canyon on the lower Gunnison River.
The Gunnison Gorge is one of the top fly fishing trips in the lower 48, and features spectacular scenery, interesting geology, sightings of varied wildlife, and most importantly, excellent fly fishing for rainbow and brown trout. Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s surveys show that the Gunnison River holds more fish per mile than any other river in the state at more than 10,000 fish per mile!
The main prize on the “Gunny” are the trophy rainbows that can measure over 20”, and this amazing stretch of river also has a healthy brown trout population. This is one of the only floats to offer both fantastic fishing and exciting whitewater in the same trip. Multi-day trips down the lower Gunnison River are slower paced and offer ample time spent out of the boat fishing from foot.
All trips begin and end at this unique riverside lodge located on a working peach orchard. The facility is set up to comfortably feed, house and entertain guests before and after their adventures. An on site fly shop carries flies, licenses and other fishing supplies. A Stocked trout pond on the property, offers casting practice and the chance to catch a really big fish. Guests are also invited to fish three miles of private water on the Gunnison River.
