Season Updates


New For 2016

We will offer guided kayak fishing trips, kayak lake tours and kayak rentals on Blue Mesa Reservoir. All of us at GSO Fishing continue to work hard to bring the most modern and innovative fishing experiences to Western Colorado.

We are happy to announce the for the first time Gunnison Sports Outfitters will be offering Ice Fishing Trips this winter!  For more information and rates visit our GSO Ice Team page.

New For 2015

We are proud to announce many new additions to our guide service this year.  We have two new Premier 201 Explorer pontoon boats for the 2015 season.

We also have new additions to our staff.  We would like to welcome Cody Rowe and Sean McLaughlin to our team.  They may be new to our staff but not to Blue Mesa or the Gunnison Area.  Both have over 4 years of experience on the lake and local rivers and Cody won the Tightline Ice Addiction fishing tournament on Blue Mesa this past winter.  See their bios on our Fishing Guides page.

We would also like to welcome our owner and now guide, Stormy Cochran to our guide team.  Stormy is not new to our company, she has kept our business up and running from the back end since we opened in 2006 and now she is the first and only female guide on the lake.  We couldn’t be more thrilled to have her on our team.  She has over 8 years of experience fishing on Blue Mesa and our surrounding waters.  She is also a tournament winning angler right here in the Gunnison Valley. Read more about Stormy on our Fishing Guides page.

We will be offering Family Perch Fishing Trips this year guided on our pontoon boat.  For more information about these trips view our Lake Fishing page.
