Spring Road Trip
 
Well I was getting cabin fever at work and decided it was time for a spring fishing trip.Talked to my brother and we decided to meet in Gunnison,Colorado and fish the Taylor and Gunnison rivers.We had an awesome 3 days of fishing. The weather did turn on Sunday and we only fished for part of the morning due to the wind. But we did manage to hook up with a few fish despite the very windy conditions.

I was lucky enough to hook up with a good fish out of the C&R section of the Taylor.. It wasn't one of the monsters that this part of the river is known for, but I was very excited to land it.

Here are a few more pictures of some fish that we landed...

Thanks guys...It was an awesome trip and it was definitely a learning experience trying to get those big fish to eat with the amount of pressure that they receive.

They were the most colorful rainbows I had ever landed, the browns were just as colorful. Eating those Mysis shrimp sure give them some awesome color.

Ya the Gunninson area is slowly turning into one of my favorite places to fish. There are so many options of places to fish, its kinda nice to be able to change it up once ina while.
