Planning a 2019 Gunnison Gorge Summer Adventure

Next summer, we’re stoked about some awesome fly fishing opportunities in the Gunnison Gorge. In addition to our annual trip in June, we’re looking forward to the epic late summer hopper fishing through the Black Canyon!

If you’ve never experienced a float trip through the world-famous Gunnison Gorge, put this trip on your short list. If you live here in Colorado, you really have no excuse. Anglers come from all over the world to experience a float down the Black Canyon of the Gunnison.

The Gunnison is renown for its salmonfly hatch in June. It’s a trip we do every year, and it’s one of our most popular, for very good reasons. However, it’s no secret that the salmonfly hatch is a moving target with a brief window.

While the June trip remains extremely popular, we have recently become fond of another opportunity on the Gunnison River – and one that is totally underrated.

Late in the summer, during August and September, the Gunnison Gorge offers outstanding hopper fishing. Obscured by the shadow of the more well-known salmonfly hatch, this could be one of the most underrated trout fishing opportunities in the west!

Imagine throwing big hoppers, to big Gunnison River trout, long after the salmonfly craze has dissipated. The river is quiet, the flows are more consistent, and the warm August weather is impossible to beat.

Fly Fish the Gunnison River

We have 3-day, 2-night trips available, which is the typical Gunnison Gorge camp float schedule. These 2019 late summer camp float trips are now available for $1,815 per person.

We’re also booking single-day trips through the Gorge. For a quick, one-day experience in the Black Canyon, this is a cool option. These trips run $1,250 per boat (2 anglers).

Along with either of these options, our travel service will coordinate lodging and assist with any logistics. And you’ll get our VIP Travel discount. This 15% discount is good from the time of deposit, until your day of departure.

For trip dates, availability or any questions, please contact Anglers All travel coordinator, Andrew Pulford. You can reach Andrew at the fly shop at 303-794-1104, or send him an email.

See you on the Gunnison next summer!
