Blue Mesa Ice Fishing Report: Some “safe Ice

This Blue Mesa Ice Fishing Report is brought to you by the first hand experiences of Robby Richardson, owner and guide at Sport Fish Colorado.

We are finally starting to see night time temperatures that are dipping below 0, but overall it has been a warm fall/start to winter in the Gunnison Valley!  Blue Mesa does have 4-10 inches of fish-able ice around the lake city bridge, but the majority of the lake is still open water.  Fishing has been fair to good for rainbow trout, brown trout, and a few perch.  As always, use extreme caution on early ice as conditions can change quickly, especially when warmer temperatures and wind are present.  Stay tuned as the ice advances for more in depth Blue Mesa Ice Fishing Reports!
