The Gunnison River in the Black Canyon and Gunnison Gorge is a Gold Medal wild trout fishery that stretches over 40 miles from Crystal Reservoir to the town of Austin and provides many diverse wading and float fishing opportunities.

The Gunnison is renowned for its large Rainbow Trout and a healthy population of Brown Trout.  A float through the steep walled Gunnison Gorge, a National Conservation Area, is one of the top fly fishing trips in the lower 48. Just downstream of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, the Gunnison Gorge features unrivaled scenery and geology. Seeing big horn sheep, mule deer, river otters and eagles will only heighten your appreciation.

Learn about the fishing opportunities from Derek R. Kehmeier with the Black Canyon UntitledAnglers.  Derek is a Colorado Native, and is now an assistant manager and guide with BCA.
