Plan on staying an extra day or two to take advantage of the rafting and fly fishing on the North Fork of the Gunnison River. Our river was designated as Gold Medal Waters by the state of wildlife commission because of the outstanding angling opportunities for large trout. If you want to go fly fishing, contact Gunnison River Expeditions, which specializes in float fishing, walk/wade trips and class III-IV rafting experiences. You can also head to Pleasure Park of the Gunnison, which offers fishing, jet boat service, sleeping cabins, and camping. If you’re interested in rafting, talk to the SEI staff, as many of us are often on the river on the weekends.
