Check out this killer video from Colorado’s Gunnison River, featuring two brothers who make their lives on the water. Here’s their description of the action:
After a decade of calling Western Colorado’s Gunnison River Gorge their home waters, the Houska brothers, Greg & Tom, share a glimpse of a summer well spent together guiding and floating the river. As the short film begins you immediately see why the Gunnsion Gorge is so unique – you have to carry all of your boating and fishing equipment over a mile into the deep remote canyon to the put in! As if that isn’t intense enough, there are 17 class II – IV named rapids in the 14 mile stretch.
Guarded by cliffs up to 2,700 vertical feet, the trout inside the Gorge grow to immense gold metal water standards with minimal angler contact. Perhaps, the best wild Brown Trout fishery in the Western US, you can see from this film exactly why the Houska brothers spend all of their time – guiding or not – inside the Gunnison Gorge.
Oh, and did we mention that every fish is caught on a dry fly?
