Pine Creek is truly an unforgiving stream that will challenge even the most advanced of anglers. If you can catch fish in Pine Creek, you can catch fish anywhere. Its steep gradient, rocky banks and closed in nature make Pine Creek extremely difficult to access and to cast. It holds few fish, but the fish it does hold are very eager to eat whatever they can get their mouths on. Fish in this creek are not used to seeing flies and fisherman- a good drift will take fish every time on Pine Creek. The challenge of Pine Creek is actually getting the good drift and in navigating the stream. Pine Creek is the perfect way to test your skills after a fun morning on the Lower Gunnison River, accessible by the trailhead at the Pine Creek parking lot.
