Blue mesa fishing report

June on Blue Mesa = excellent Kokanee Fishing

June has been great for GSO on Blue Mesa. Kokanee fishing has been as good as it gets and the fish are healthy and HUGE. We still have some days open in July and the fishing should stay just as good as it is now.

 

 

 

 

Also we have been doing some Fly Fishing trips around the Blue Mesa’s waters. Consider us for your next fly fishing trip in the Gunnison valley

 

Blue Mesa Lake Trout

Trophy lake trout season has been good to GSO so far. Not gonna say it’s been easy, but finding a way to produce fish for clients on most trips!! With low water levels we’re finding some fish in new spots and been trying lots of new lures and tactics to induce a strikes> its been fun re-learning the lake at this water level. The bad news for good fishing this season is that many of the old trophy sized fish are being harvested by some anglers daily. It’s so sad to see people have no consideration for the fishery that they love so much. It’s so sad to see these old fish end up on stringer. I heard of one boat keeping 17 mackinaw one day,  half of which were old big fish and another that had 5 over 3olbs one day! sad sad sad, very ignorant and very disrespectful to an amazing fish that takes so long to grow that big! Please consider this lake trout  fishery for the future generations of anglers that will want to catch these fish and not just here the stories from you about how many 30lb’ers you threw on the grill years ago!

SAVE A LAKE TROUT>EAT KOKANNE FOR DINNER

April 2013, Blue Mesa Reservoir Fishing

A cold month it was, trophy fishing was not hot but we found a way to put BIG fish in the boat most days out with clients, April stats are. 1 fish over 30lbs (35)4 over 20lbs , and a handful in the teen’s , The highlight of the month was the first fish I guided was this Monster 32in 15lb Brown Trout!

welcome to the 2012 season

Kok limits every day!

First days of summer. We were limited on salmon today by 9am. 20! 4yr olds and then more trout than we could count the rest of the day.

Under the Radar!

sorry for the lack of fishing reports guys!! dang it has been a while! Simply put we at GSO have been fishing under the radar! I guess i’ll just tell you, this has been some of the best Salmon fishing i’v seen in all my years on BM. our clients have been bagging limits everyday with ease. 20-60 fish days with out playing bumper boats. Andy on the east end of things has been providing salmon and trophy brown trips and Ryan on the sapinero side has been producing salmon limits and deep water trophy lake trout daily. yesterday,had 20+ salmon by 9am and finished with a few 10+ lb lakers and had all the browns small lakers we could handle. last week was able to catch one 30+lb mac and a handful of double digit class fish for some of my lucky clients…
Morrow point is in full swing and guided a 40+ fish day today with the classics mulit technique multi species trip. I love that place. you just never know… Triples w/ 3 differnt species!!! where else dose that happen? again, it is the trip of a life time down there! ok, now back to just fishing, avoiding the crowds, the “hot spots”, the “mad dogs” and fame!
Also morrow poin

The objective, “Trophy Blue Mesa Lake Trout”. Nothing Less

The storms have be brutal the past 4 days.. high wind, cold temps, lots of rain/snow, barametric change = inconsistent fishing…. But  still have been able to meet the goal, “Guide trophy lake trout” only have one Skunk this season on Macs.  Only 2 of my  fish are under  ten pounds! Yesterday  Brad Salazar Caught this blue mesa 23lbr. his biggest CO fish ever!

 

Today I caught this 40in fish that weigh 37lbs. I don’t think this fish was even close to it’s best body condition. she’ll be 40+ this summer.. Hope some sucker soaker or a DOW gill net dose not get ahold of her! LET BIG FISH GO PEOPLE!

Back in action on Blue Mesa! The 2011 season is ON!
