Fishing Report For:
March 27th. 2023
This little gem of a creek cuts its way from the top of Vail pass through the town of Vail to the confluence of the Eagle River just west of Vail. The upper Gore creek is a faster moving creek that has a good population of Brook trout as well as Cutthroats, Browns and Rainbows.
Designated a gold medal fishery below the area at Lionshead, the Gore can be a tremendous fishery for those who can figure out her little secrets. Sight fishing to large fish can be very rewarding, if not downright challenging! The Gore Creek fish are smarter than your average trout. So hire a smarter than average guide for success on the Gore.
The Gore is in good fishing condition if you know where to go, that’s why we’re here. Nymphing is the go in Spring for fishing from Lionshead down to the Eagle confluence. Stealth and a good guide are the keys to success on the Gore Creek.
3/27/2023– The Gore Creek below Lionshead is open and Ice free. But due to the amount of snow in the upper valley the access to the Gore is not easy. Expect to do some post holing. Spring fishing on the Gore can be absolutely amazing! The Dry fly fishing is great with just a handful of #18 Parachute Adams. although there is some pretty deep snow along the banks, making access a bit of a post holing activity.
Please respect the Redds! The rainbow trout are spawning right now, so please give space so that they can do their thing.
