Tomichi Creek is the most active river restoration site in the Gunnison Valley. Anglers should not expect to catch a lot of fishing while fishing at Tomichi Creek. Often struggling to hold enough water, Tomichi Creek is victim to the modern-day water battle. Existing more in the lower sections than the headwaters, Tomichi Creek has seen countless hours of willow planting and bank restoration. Suckers occupy the river in far greater numbers than trout (as determined by electroshock sampling). The higher up Tomichi Creek the angler goes, the more wild trout he/she will find. Tomichi Creek is a great pit-stop on a road trip or a great destination trip to get away and catch wild fish in the most active restoration creek in the Gunnison Valley.
