blue mesa fishing

It’s about time!! Blue Mesa Fishing Report 2014

Blue Mesa Reservoir with Fish Blue Mesa and Gunnison Sports Outfitters.

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

Morrow Point Guided Fishing Begins & Blue Mesa Lake Trout Still finding my net!

My Favorite Boat Launch..Morrow Point is open. We boated over 50 fish today!!

YEAH! We saw her and then Ace Osmun reeled her in!! 

I Love my days off but I’d rather see YOU catch em!

One here, One there..

Tina and I have been out for 4days on the new boat and have found a way to boat lakers… It’s been one here and there, we have fund em in all depths and spots.. This fish was boated in a cold north wind day with little action… Today was clear warm calm day and the bite was completely different.. I’m open for business and am ready to guide YOU on the new boat.

Looks like the new LUND boat can raise the fish on Blue Mesa!

I know I’m late but I’m here now with a new boat. We took it out yesterday to see if it floats.. oh and to see if she can catch blue mesa lake trout. Looks like it’ll do just fine. Tina Greene catches her first mac, a 22lbr.

Thanks to LUND boats and Canon Marine, We’ll be fishing out of a new boat in 2012

Welcome to the 2012 season!!

I’m now taking reservations and May is booking up fast. Call/Message me to get in the books and your best chance at a blue mesa trophy Lake Trout

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!


“Stormy” april Lake trout on Blue mesa.

With strong North winds and blowing snow this was best part of the day! Been able to land lakers all week. Slow, but finding a way everyday
