I'm not a fisherman, but I understand it and I can think of no better place for fishing. The scenery is outstanding.
Robby our guide was awesome. He worked hard all day long. He kept changing out lures making for sure that the fish were biting. He also made sure we were staying on the fish. He give us lots of tips and tricks to use on are own. Very educational and infromive guide.
In short this to was worth every penny. We got on the water about 6-630am and between 4 of us we had 52 fish in the boat by 11am. Or guide robby was hard working and knowledgeable. Even though it was chilly, out he broke a sweat busting butt keeping our lines baited and in the water, giving us every chance to catch fish. I would highly recommend our guide, Robby Richardson, to anyone looking to advance their fishing resume or even just getting started in trolling.
We spent two half days in a rental pontoon boat on the lake and came away with 2 fish. Others were getting a few but no major hauls. Can't blame it on any thing but fishing luck.The lake was beautiful for the two days; like glass and not much wind. The water level is way down but is coming up some with the late runoff. The Elk Creek Marina has fewer boat slips due to the low water. All in All, had a very pleasent tour of Blue Mesa!
Robby is first class all the way. Very customer service oriented and knows how to catch fish!! We had a great time the first trip and booked a second. Can't wait for future trips - book with Robby, you will see some beautiful country, catch some great fish, and most of all have an outstanding time!! Thanks Robby!!
We recently booked a trip with Sport Fish Colorado. Arranging a day/time was easy, and working with Robbie to coordinate our schedules was hassle free. Each of the guides we meet from Sport Fish Colorado were very professional, knew the water well, and put us on the fish. We went home with a cooler full of trout and salmon, and had a great time fishing for them. We are planning on making the Blue Mesa guided trip a yearly tradition. Thanks.
My brother and I went out fishing with Robby last week and had a great time. I almost never write reviews, but want to add to the long list of positive comments for Blue Mesa Fishing.Robby is a dependable, trustworthy guide who has a passion for fishing. His detailed knowledge of the lake and determination to get you to the fish is all anyone can ask of a guide. We caught salmon, browns, rainbows and went after a few Lake Trout.If you are in or around Gunnison, I would absolutely recommend fishing the Blue Mesa and Robby
The day of fishing with our guide Robbie was to say the least "Amazing" He brought all the technology and knowlege, and combined for a genuine caring that our experience was one for the books, made it a day to remember. He took the time to make sure we were in the right spot and also shared with us tips to make the fish bite, changed lures, baits, to make sure we got the fish we came for. At the end of the day, we left with a cooler full of (Cleaned) salmon and perch to take home and enjoy the experience for weeks to come, and the fish tasted amazing. Thank you again for making this the best day of fishing I ever had, I will cherish the memories.
Incredible views at any time of the day, boating (including boat rentals), fishing, birding, wild life, hiking, camping, including RVs, it's all there. Two full service marinas and even a restaurant on the premises (seasonal) make the place a dream. It's about twenty miles West of Gunnison on Rt 50. Enjoyable any time of the year.
What a great say fishing on Blue Mesa with Seth. He worked extremely hard to find the fish . Was very attentive to keeping rods up and in water. Wasnt in a rush to comeback in. Filleted our mixed catch of trout and salmon.We will go with him again!!!!!
