About This Book

FLY FISHING THE GUNNISON COUNTRY:  THE FLY FISHER’S GUIDE TO THE RIVERS, CREEKS, AND HIGH MOUNTAIN LAKES OF THE GUNNISON BASIN.  This fly fishing guidebook to Colorado’s Gunnison Valley includes information on all of the area’s major trout streams, including the Gunnison River (Upper, Black Canyon, and Gunnison Gorge), Taylor River, East River, and the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River.  The area’s smaller streams, including Cebolla, Henson, Big Blue, Tomichi, Quartz, Cochetopa, Anthracite, Ruby Anthracite, and Spring Creeks, are included in separate chapters.  The Gunnison Country’s premiere high lakes are discussed at length as well, with chapters on Upper & Lower Lamphier, Mill, Crystal, and Henry Lakes.  Detailed and informative chapters are included on all the major trout and salmon species that call Gunnison Basin fly waters home, including separate chapters on brook, brown, rainbow, and cutthroat trout, along with kokanee salmon.

FLY FISHING THE GUNNISON COUNTRY is the culmination of over 10 years of researching, photographing, and writing about Gunnison Basin trout streams and the salmonid species that inhabit these fisheries. This 304 page, full-col­or fly fishing guidebook is chock-full of information found nowhere else, including 142 beautiful color photographs with informative captions, numerous maps and hatch charts, sage advice directly from a slew of the most accomplished fly fishing guides, fly shop owners, and outfitters in the Gunnison Valley, along with a virtually never-ending treasure trove of other information and data on many of the Gunnison Country’s most famous and productive fly waters.
