Colorado Stream Update: The Gunnison River is cold and icy which is making for tough fishing conditions.

Current Conditions at Gunnison:

The Gunnison is offering very limited opportunities to catch trout right now because most of the river is unfishable. There are limited spots, the best being right in town, so with that said we recommend heading elsewhere.

The fishing is slow.  Clear skies and 19- degree weather. The water temperature was between 32-35 degrees and Crystal Clear.
