Will it ever Stop?
Took a chance this morning and whammy- the fish are still here, but hard to find. Boys day out turned out be a free guided trip with me doing the work!?!?!? Good times Turnip, Rich, Crazy Jerry, Jessinator and Robby Dog. It's over for us- we got 'em, left 'em biting and packed it in. Thanks all for a great season- see you at Powell- ask about the masterclass!

We took the Harmons out for a second trip and whammy! We nailed big fat kokes but worked hard to get them! The winds were hard and only the pros could hang- Awesome work Deadstick Dave, Turnip, Grub-face, Uban, Robby-Dog, Crazy Jerry and the posse and associated clowns! Paul and Eric Snyder and Norma came out Sunday for a hard pick on Kokes and had some fish to show for, but many never made it to the boat- that's why it's koke fishing! They keep us working hard- Great work crew!

Labor Day Wrap Up
It was all a blur with two things in common- catching and sharking!!!!!!!!!!! Fellow anglers, there is a limit into which you can follow my boat and crush the school I have found and take away from my clients and my own experience! Give me a little space! Happy Labor Day

Captains’ Log Hey Folks, this is Captain Casey, owner and head guide of Blue Mesa Fishing. We love fishing Blue Mesa Reservoir and do it with a passion to catch more and bigger fish and give clients a memorable guided fishing experience on every trip. Here at Blue Mesa Fishing we do many kinds of guided fishing trips from Lake Trout fishing during ice out in the spring, to kokanee salmon trolling in the summer and jigging in the fall. After the kokanee salmon leave the lake, we focus on fly fishing the secluded waters of the Lake Fork arm of the Gunnison River and Cebolla Creek. We also offer guided ice fishing trips from Blue Mesa Reservoir to Rifle Gap State Park in Western Colorado. Here at Blue Mesa Fishing, we try to catch throughout the entire year and offer a variety of ways to do it. If you’re interested in a trip, look through any of our packages, or just read through our site to learn how you can catch more and bigger fish in Colorado. Thanks again for checking us out and visit our three new sites found at the bottom of each page! Fish On
