  1. Default VAil Area fishing

    Are there any good fishing rivers within easy driving distance from Vail? I was thinking about flying out with the wife and staying at the Vail Marriott Resort. Gore Creek?

    Thanks

    There is Ten Mile Creek, which is just east of Vail between Copper Mountain and Frisco. There is also the creek tailwaters that dump into Dillon Reservoir that has always been good fishing. I grew up around that area - man, I am a little jealous.

    I love it in CO because most every local knows to keep their mouth shut about great spots, not the same in the south where i grew up

    Default Eagle River in Edwards

    I fished this stretch from about a mile east of Edwards to Arrowhead 2 weeks ago and was very disappointed. I even used the flies the shops recommended. Both myself and an old friend came up empty despite the "great" reports one shop mentioned. I'd recommend the Blue River, the Frying Pan, the Roaring Fork which are close enough from Vail. So many tributaries around this area you can't go wrong. I'm just not sure if the pressure is overwhelming or what on the Eagle? Good Luck...

    The gore is low and gin clear, but access is limited.
    3 minutes from Vail heading west is the minturn exit. Here the gore meets the Eagle and there is good access here, and down river two miles or so has some great water, saw some guides there this morning about 830 am. The eagle is a great fishery that often gets overlooked. The next best access points, and good fishing are located west on I 70. One spot is a mile or so west of Wolcott. Its about 20 min from vail. Another is in Gypsum, at a place called gypsum ponds. Gypsum is about 30 minutes from vail. There are ponds here, but about 2 or 3 miles of public river with some great runs a riffs.

    The gore could be fun, if you can get access. I think the Eagle is a better bet. I lived in this area for long time.

    Good luck, im leaving on vacation to Montana tomorrow, so excited!!!!!
