Fishing the Gunnison

With its streaked, 2,000-foot-high walls and tumbling, technical rapids, Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, near Morrison, is a well of adventure for both expert rock climbers and kayakers. But the park is also prime fishing grounds: The stretch of river that passes through the park is among just 168 miles of trout stream in Colorado designated by the state as Gold Medal Waters. Both rainbow trout and the native Colorado cutthroat ply the river, and fly fishing enthusiasts with valid licenses can bag up to four brownies a day, perfect for grilling up at one of the park’s two rimside campgrounds.
