Fishing at Waunita Hot Springs

family on the TaylorThe Gunnison basin offers a wide variety of fishing opportunities. Within a one hour radius you can fish the largest reservoir in Colorado (Blue Mesa), or smaller lakes and reservoirs featuring Rainbows, Browns, even Kokani Salmon & Perch. Rivers include the well known Gunnison and Taylor Rivers, Cochetope & Tomichi Creeks. High Country fishing in smaller streams and beaver ponds feature brook trout.

All of the "off ranch" fishing would require a Colorado fishing license. At the ranch, take advantage of the stocked kids fishing lake for those beginner fly fishing lessons. A license is not required for the ranch lake.

troutAs for fishing gear, you should plan on bringing your own fishing gear. We do have some gear/tackle for sale in the gift shop, and we can always pick something up for you in town.

You'll enjoy the fish fry that is a part of the Thursday evening cookout. In fact, we'll cook up your catch for you and your fellow guests.
