Gore Creek Fish Report

Fishing report for April 6th 2014.

This little gem of a creek cuts it's way from the top of Vail pass through the town of Vail to the confluence of the Eagle River just west of Vail.  The upper Gore creek is a faster moving creek that has a good population of brook trout as well as Cutthroats, Browns and Rainbows.  Designated a gold medal fishery below the area at Lionshead the Gore can be a tremendous fishery for those who can figure out her little secrets.  Sight fishing to large fish can be very rewarding if not Challenging.  The Gore Creek fish are smarter then your average trout. So hire a smarter then average guide for success on the Gore. Enough said! The Gore is in good fishing condition if you know where to go, that's why we're here.  Good dry/dropper fishing from Lionshead down to the Eagle confluence. Stealth and a good guide are the keys to success on the Gore Creek.  Please be respectful of the spawning Rainbows

Gore Creek Fly Fishing Report:

Good fishing from Lionshead down  to the confluence.  The Gore upstream of lionhshead is very fishable now as well. Great dry fly oppurtunities with smaller BWO and Midge imitations. Low flows mean spooky fish, long light leader/tippets are a must (6X,7X).  A stealthy approach is needed this time of year.  The Gore is a very fun sight fishing water that many people liken to fishing some of our states most famous tailwaters.  Please be careful not walk over the Rainbows spawning beds.
