The beautiful, remot gunnison river gorge
« on: May 25, 2004, 03:57 PM »
This place is a place where we go at least twice every summer. It is very remote and the rapids are very difficult, but in between the rapids you can fish for fish that have barely seen a lure all year, and there are some true monsters, a 19 lb brown being my largest fish ever. We bring 1 throw-away camera and save very few pictures for fish, as watching ourselves go through the rapids or in a horrible storm, or just seeing bighorn sheep and beautiful rock formations take most of our film. It is about a 3-day trip.
Here are a few rapids, (the smaller ones) some scenery can be seen in the background, and a few fish. (browns, rainbows, in river, mostly browns).

Here's one where you can really see the territory well, although the canyon gets so narow at some points so that you can barely fit through, and boy is the trouting great in these spots!!!

The fishing ain't bad either!

cool, stuff, the upper hudson river gorge up here is like that too. the only access is to raft it, and I hear from a guy at work that guides it, the rainbows are GREAT, noone really fishes it, except a select few that pay to get down into this place. Great picture.  :D
Fishing isn't a matter of life or death, it's much more important than that!

I live with FEAR everyday, and sometimes she lets me go fishing!

Great pics TFB. We are doing a trip down the Gunnison River June 9th through the 12th for troubled teens. We are always looking for volunteers to help us out with the trips. You get to float the river for free and it is a great time. Today we took MDS clients down the Colorado river from hering parking lot to fruita. It was about a 15 to 20 mile float. If you would be intrested in doing some of the floats down the different rivers, go and talk to Tyler or Beth. They are located in the caboose in the dinasour mesume parking lot. And I will find the web site for you to go look at to. The web site is for their winter programs up at powerhorn. An you can print a aplication from the site. Here is the web site...................

At first, I thought it was a hair too. But later, I found out that  it was not the case. It is a scratch, and for some reason, it is black.... must've been one of my claws :o
