Blue Mesa Reservoir with Fish Blue Mesa and Gunnison Sports Outfitters.
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!
The ice is coming off of Blue Mesa Reservoir and We at Gunnison Sports Outfitters are ready to go! Come fish with GSO this spring for your best chance a Blue Mesa trophy lake trout! this 40lb hawg was caught last spring and was released for YOU to have a chance at this season!
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.
