Gunnison Sports Outfitters

Guided Fishing ~ Kayak Fishing ~ Lake Tours ~ Ice Fishing  ~ Walk-Wade Trips

Gunnison Sports Outfitters is the oldest locally owned and operated fishing guide service on Blue Mesa Reservoir. Because Blue Mesa is large, long, and often very intimidating to fish, Gunnison Sports Outfitters was formed in 2006. We wanted to give visiting and resident anglers a high-quality fishing experience. We make sure our guides have all the right equipment, know where the fish are, and most importantly—know how to catch them. Therefore giving our  clients a fantastic fishing expedition!

Since our first trip 2006 we have expanded our guide service from the more traditional guided fishing trips to walk-wade trips, ice fishing, kayak fishing and now Blue Mesa lake tours. We can now offer trips for the hardcore angler, the modern day kayaker, the traditional fly fisherman, to the nature enthusiast. We do it all!

Custom Trips

Not only do we provide many different types of trips but we can custom tailor your trip to suit your needs!  Do you have a large party? No Problem! Want to try evening fishing? We can do it!  Need wheelchair access? We have the perfect boat for that! Just let us know your specific needs, and we will do our best to make it happen.

While our guide service has expanded over the years we are still the same family based company we started out as. Since the launch of our first boat, we have striven to provide the best experience imaginable when guests are out on the lake with us. Don’t take our word for it. Call to book your trip now!

“ For all of us at Gunnison Sports Outfitters it isn’t about just catching fish.  We want to take you out on the lake and give you the best overall experience possible, no matter what the lake conditions are.  We want you to walk away from our boats with a smile on your face and memories to last a lifetime.”
