The Lake Fork To the Gunnison is Fishable!
Mornings are registering below freezing, afternoons are sunny and warm, leaves still cling to the cottonwoods as if defying winter to come to the valley, and streets are quiet and uninhabited except at school and mail time. The deer are beginning to hang around nipping at dried flowers and hoping to find some edible goodies. The Browns are moving in the Lake Fork but the water is getting quite low and is cold until mid-afternoon.
Current Fishing and Weather Conditions
The cfs on the Lake Fork is running in the 80s. It is low but fishable. Best time is after it warms up starting around 1:00 to 4:00 pm. Browns are spawning so the males are aggressive and will respond to streamers. There are some very nice sized Rainbows in deep holes. Use small bead head nymphs such as copper johns and princes.
