I spent much of my childhood in Gunnison (circa; 1955 - 1964) we lived in town. I learned to trout fish on the Gunnison River, Taylor River and East River. My father was an expert at using a bamboo rod, fly reel, and floating line. I still go back into the area to fish, although much of the areas I used to fish are now private property.

Nice brown trout!

My 2 favorites are arctic grayling because they remind me of the tropical fish you see in aquariums (mollies?) and are very cooperative with a #2 fly rod, and silver (cohos) salmon freshly minted from the ocean on a #8 fly rod.

MG...nice pictures! I too like Brookies, they are beautiful trout. I find the Cutthroat to be the most difficult steam fish to catch. My Dad used to tell me they "hit the side of the bait" so you miss more than you catch. Not sure why, but they are always difficult to get on the hook...
