This map features the Gunnison River in Colorado from Alma to Delta. It contains all public fishing access area, campgrounds, boat put in locations, and parking areas. Also included are insect hatch chart and fishing regulations, Forest Service Public Lands and BLM Public Land areas.
The upper section of the river is largest above the Blue Mesa Reservoir which is a renowned kokanee salmon fishery. The lower section lies below the reservoir in the Black Canyon of Gunnison National Park where trophy rainbow trout measuring over 20 inches can be found.
Downstream of the Black Canyon, just south of the confluence of the river, is Gunnison Gorge. Here, within the steep-walls of the gorge, the river offers one of the top fly fishing destinations to be found anywhere in the lower 48 states.
The Gunnison River offers several public access points for wading, though fishing from drift boats when the waters are high is preferable. The river has many long runs and deep pools, and aquatic insects are to be found just about everywhere.
