Colorado Stream Update: Get those flies on the bottom!

Current Conditions at Gunnison:

Winter conditions on the Gunnison have really settled in. Fish are being found in deep holding areas. Be sure to target the warmest part of the day, at that your flies are at the right depth. A good nymph rig with a bead-head point fly followed by a more selective offering is the way to go. Midges are a big part of the game now, so when in doubt size down. RS2s, jujus, disco midges and top secrets are all good places to start.

Winter fishing conditions are in effect  The fishing is fair.  Clear skies and 32-35 degree weather. The water temperature was between 32-35 degrees and Crystal Clear.
