Gore Creek Fishing Report | Post Run-Off

Gore Creek in Vail is Dropping and the Fishing is Getting Great!


Gore Creek fishing report:  Awesome Summer fishing on Gore CreekOur favorite little local creek is ready and willing for the summer season. The East Vail reach has fished OK this past week and the Lionshead- The Confluence of the Eagle is fishing very well. Starting to see quite a few pmd’s and Caddis in the air but as you know the lower stretch is best fished with a technical nymph rig.
