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

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