Fishing Report - Gunnison River, Colorado -
September 17, 2018
Low water conditions still exist but trout are still being caught in good numbers. The
freestone levels are still very low and you have to stay hidden from the trout. The
tailwater flows are a little low but both sections are turning out trout. You can catch
trout  provided you match the hatch and/or match what is about to hatch.
