Gunnison River Salmonfly Hatch!

Floating the Black Canyon of the Gunnison for Salmonfly's!!

The Gunnison is one of the top areas for big rainbow and brown trout, and the isolated, narrow Black Canyon is one of those places that inspires or keeps you coming back year after year. The best way to thoroughly explore the area and get a real feel for this awesome river is to take a float trip through it and spend several days working on flies and getting tips from experienced guides, such as those with Black Canyon Anglers, a longtime outfitter on the "Gunny." They will take care of rafting gear, camping gear, food, shuttle fees, horse-pack fees and the federal user fees, and share their expertise on catching (and releasing) the big ones. You can float it or head to Pleasure Park for an adventure riverside fishing or camping and hang with Crazy transporter Leroy....he is a Hoot!!
