On the River: East River, Gunnison, Colorado

Sat. March 21st
Michelle and I put in at the pull off a couple of miles before the hatchery entrance (for some reason you couldn't drive down the hatchery road. I'm guessing because they don't want it rutted out in the mud season). After hiking down a bit below the hatchery outlet we looked for the same type of water as on the Gunnison and were met with good success.

We fished a tungsten hare's ear trailed by a baetis again. The only difference was we did find some pretty nice rainbows sitting up in  a little shallower, broken water, but it was still pretty slow moving. Most of the fish were pretty small, but Michelle did hook a rainbow that was very nice, but pulled out pretty quickly.

All in all, I'd say the "pre-run off" fishing this year isn't quite as good as it was last year, but there is no lack of fish to be had.

Happy Fishing
