River and Stream Fishing

Several large rivers and many smaller creeks provide a variety of fishing opportunities on our forest. The Gunnison, Taylor, Uncompahgre, and San Miguel Rivers, and their many tributaries are just a few of the water ways that host rainbows, browns, cutthroats and brookies.  In some areas you may never see another angler!
