Thanks for the welcome, Joni. Haven't wet a line since before the holidays, so I'm excited to get out soon. As far as fishing in Colorado, I think the Gunnison is supposed to be some good fly water.

I'm running the Colorado through the Grand Canyon in early April, but I'm meeting folks at the 87.5-mile mark, supposedly past all the good water Might just leave the fly rod behind.[/
Hi nancykim,

If you are going to float the Canyon you will put in at Lee's Ferry. There is some trout fishing right near the landing and down stream. If by chance you are putting in at the Dam you will be right in the good fishing but the raft is not going to stop for you to fish. There is a camp ground between the Dam and Lee's Ferry but I don't think they with stay there the first night. If they do stop you will be in some very good trout water. I have taken a 25" Rainbow right close to the camp.

As you go down the Canyon they will camp at one site that has a feeder stream entering the Colorado right by camp. Rainbow hang out right at the confluence of the stream and river. If the river is discolored the fish will hang in the colored water right at the edge of the clear water. The past few years the F&G stopped regulating Rainbows in the river below Lee's Ferry. They want to eliminate them and have no limit regulations on these fish. I don't know if that is still the case. You are in for a great trip.

Frank

Hey Tgoodwater,

Where in Colorado are you going to go to? There is a lot of superb fishing throughout the state depending if you go north, central or south.

I am going to have to do some research as to where Gunnison is, but thanks for the info. I will look into it.

Frank,
For some reason, that automatically appears in my reply box and I have to delete it.

Thanks for the info on the Grand Canyon. I will not be at the Lee's Ferry put-in as I am joining the float at 87.5 river miles at Phantom Ranch. From what I hear, the water is pretty discolored downstream from this point and not very fishable. At least that's what I heard from a Lee's Ferry guide.

nancykim,

Too bad you missed the upper water.

If you don't want to quote anything from a post you can go to the last post in the thread and look just under the last post on the left. There is a link that says "Post Reply". You will get a window with out the message. You can also paste from a post if you want to quote something. Or you can just do it like you are and I will see about that message.

Frank

I live in Estes Park in the Summers. If you like mountains & hiking and want to get away from the crowds, then head up deep into rocky mountain national park! A trip over into Kremmling is also a nice way to get out of the crowded streams as well.
