High Mountain Drifters Guide Service Overview About

FISH THE GUNNISON VALLEY WITH COLORADO'S MOST VERSATILE YEAR ROUND GUIDE SERVICE 

Fish the most diverse waters in Southwest Colorado with our experienced guides.  We fish on public and private waters.  

Ice Fishing Blue Mesa Reservoir

Come and see a true sport fishing experience on ice!  Blue Mesa is a multi-species fishery with a lot to offer from the young beginner fisherman, to the most seasoned anglers.  
We provide all of the gear you will need on your trip except warm clothing and a current Colorado fishing license.  Heated ice shelters and fish finders make an ice fishing experience very comfortable and enjoyable.  Whether you have never tried fishing through the ice, or you are just needing some help finding and catching fish, we can help give you an experience you won't forget. 

 

Float Fishing on the Upper Gunnison River (Almont to Blue Mesa Reservoir)

The Gunnison River is formed in Almont at the confluence of the East River and the Taylor River.  From there the Gunnison River gives us one of the best fisheries in the state, as well as the largest tributary to the Colorado River.  In roughly 20 miles of floatable river you will see some gorgeous scenery and an awesome fishing experience. 


Walk Wade Fly Fishing
We recommend a walk wade trip to anyone who wants to learn more about the sport as well as how to be more successful on your own adventures.  We strive to further your knowledge of tying knots, reading water, entomology, fly casting, mending line, fighting fish, and possibly most importantly to us, how to properly land and handle fish to ensure a successful release.  
  

Blue Mesa Reservoir

Blue Mesa is the largest body of water in the state and also holds some of the biggest fish in the state.  With that comes some controversy.  Blue Mesa is mainly managed as a kokanee salmon fishery and is a great one.  It also is home to the fastest growing lake trout in the world!  Even though they grow faster than anywhere else, they are still a very slow growing fish and their numbers are unfortunately decreasing rapidly.  Every year way too many of these 20-50 year old fish are taken out of Blue Mesa due to fishermen and regulations that push for removal of these magnificent fish.  It is our goal to push for a balance in Blue Mesa and to preserve one of the WORLD'S best lake trout fisheries.
