Best fishing experience!

This is our second guided fishing trip at Blue Mesa with our experience & friendly guide - Randy! Within 20 minutes we were catching salmon, brown trout and rainbow! The weather was GREAT and the water level was excellent. Randy was very friendly with our grandon! We highly recommend GSO and Randy for a most memorable time!

Great time!

Had a great time out on the water with Andy. Caught 4 different species of fish which was incredible (brown, salmon, lake, rainbow). The little ones had so much fun and learned a lot from Andy.

So Many Fish!!

We have fished with Randy before and hopefully will again. This time we went out on 6/10/22 for just a four hour trip and it was good we were not out longer because we spent all afternoon shrink wrapping our huge catch as it was! And I might add the fish were expertly cleaned. Nice fillets with few bones. It is always fun to spend time out fishing with Randy.

Great Day!

Randy Sandoval is a great guide! Knowledgeable, personable and he was always on the move. We caught many fish and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. What a great way to spend our day with a great guy:)

Randy knows Fishing!

Truly a wonderful time out fishing with Randy! He knows his stuff and his gear was top notch. Best of all though besides catching so many fish was his attitude. Gently taught us so much, upped our Fishing game permanently! Truly a gentleman and made it fun! Can’t recommend him enough book your trip today!

So many fish!

What a great morning out with Randy this morning. He really knows how to catch everything. We got browns, rainbow, salmon, and a lake trout. We can’t wait to come back and go out with him again. Just perfect!

Excellent trip!

We spent 6 great hours fishing with Rrandy Sandoval. He is the consummate guide. Randy was in perpetual motion. His boat & gear are top-notch. I'm already planning several more trips this year.

Best day of fishing I’ve ever had. Randy put us on the fish from the time we got on the boat to the time we got off non stop action. 100% recommend taking a trip.

Fishtastic day

It was a great fishing day.The fish were always there to be caught.Within the first 5 minutes on the boat we caught a 14 inch trout.We ended up catching about 15 fish each.My wife and I enjoyed the whole trip.The guide was full of information,professional and easy to talk with.We kept one fish the salmon.
It tasted good for dinner.All in all we caught more fish than we expected and one highlight for me and my wife were the 18 inch lake trout that we caught.
We were always comfortable and time went fast.

Fishing blue mesa 5/10/22

Had a great time fishing with Randy. I fished with Randy last year as well and had a great time both trips. Randy has a great lund set up and is ready before the scheduled start time. I was reeling in fish within 10 minutes of getting on the boat and the action was good all morning long.

Fishing with Randy

I totally enjoyed my fishing trip with Randy Sandoval we caught a lot of fish and had a good time. Randy’s knowledge of the reservoir the fish and what tackle to use ensures you a great day of fishing I highly recommend it to anybody who loves to catch fish.

In the fish

Randy put us on the fish from the very beginning and lasted throughout the day. Opted for the full day trip and spent the entire day catching fish. Randy worked tirelessly to get us on the Lakers, but they chose not to partake, but kept us quite busy and fully entertained by pulling in Browns, Bows, and Kokes. Had an absolute blast and have already talked about our soon coming return. Randy was beyond accommodating, knowledgeable, and friendly as a guide. He made us feel like we had know him for years. If you are looking to catch fish and enjoy your time while doing it… GSO Fishing & Randy are the way to go!


Andy put us on the fish! We caught our limit and had a 30” on deck! Very successful!
Was really a lot of room on the pontoon. Very well equipped for the task. Very relaxed atmosphere, conversation was stimulating! We were allowed to actually FISH and do more than just Catch. This was very welcome adder for our group!

Outstanding Morning Of Fishing!!

Randy put us on fish all morning long! His fishing knowledge and helpfulness are unequaled! Highly recommend Randy Sandoval for a fishing experience you’ll always remember as being one of your best! Thanks Randy!

Fun with Randy

Kept us on the fish great job.


We had 2 outstanding days of fishing with Randy can wait to go again

Always a Great Time

Been a second home owner in Gunnison for almost 20 years. Been fishing the Blue Mesa almost every summer with GSO guide, Randy Sandoval. Randy knows the water and will put you on fish, even when other boats are having a rough day. Fishing my first spring trip with Randy in late April. Can not wait!


I have known Randy Sandoval for over 15 years. His knowledge of fishing is 2nd to none. He is well prepared in the morning, has every available piece of tackle and gear to put you on fish. From his knowledge of the lake, to setting up equipment and his tireless effort of checking baits, down riggers, proper depths is never ending. Once your fish is on, he will provide you with the proper technique to land your fish. Once your fish is on the boat, it will be cared for until you end your day. From cleaning the fish for proper table fare, your fish will be ready for you to enjoy when you end your day. I have fished with many guides-Randy is one I would recommend time and time again. Please enjoy your fishing trip as much as I do with Randy. You will be back! Tight lines to all-Fish shake-Slap, slap, slap!!

You Gotta Go

If you have not fished Blue mesa, I highley recoomend getting out there. Spring fishing is a blast. Randy has put us on, literally, hundreds of fish over the last 4 years...Browns, rainbows, lakers and salmon... When the rod goes off, you never know whats on the other end... Cant wait to out with him agian this year.....come on spring.



What a wonderful trip we had thanks to your hospitality. Thank you very much, captain

Perfect day on the lake!

I booked a guided fishing trip for my husband as a surprise for our anniversary. He absolutely loved it!! Marv was our guide and he went above and beyond to make sure our day on the lake was perfect. I can't recommend him and GSO Fishing enough!! They were an absolute pleasure to work with. Marv knew everything to make sure we caught plenty of fish and the types we were looking for. We had so much fun spending the day with him. If you're thinking of booking with GSO, do it! It's a completely worthwhile experience you won't regret. We are looking forward to booking another trip with Marv in the future! Thanks GSO Fishing and Marv!

What a trip!

Wanted to experience a fishing adventure unlike I have been used to. Being a little out of my comfort zone, Randy was a great help. Not only did he try to teach us tips and tricks. The trip was never dull. We were always on Salmon. Definitely will be returning. If you haven't booked your trip yet, do it!

Want to catch a salmon? THIS is your guy!

As soon as I learned you could catch a salmon in Colorado I HAD to give it a shot. Andy gives you the best shot. He put us right on this fish on his clean and comfortable boat. He was patient with us as my girlfriend had never been fishing before and I had lots of questions about the different fish. It was a 5 star experience for a great price
