With a quick wave, Al DeGrange of Gunnison River Expeditions heads back to the Pleasure Park after leaving three anglers four miles upstream on the Gunnison River. The bow of the boat points to last year’s high water mark of about 9,000 cfs.

Taking a spin on the Gunnison

Trip to lower edge of Black Canyon a treat

AUSTIN — With a spin of the wheel, Al DeGrange turned his aluminum boat in a tight circle and headed upstream.
Guiding the jet-boat across the runoff-charged North Fork of the Gunnison, DeGrange leaned forward and growled at the three passengers sitting before him.
“Here we go,” he warned. “You gents might want to hold on to your hats, it gets a bit windy.”
And with that, the boat jumped ahead, letting the morning and the Gunnison unfold in mid-spring glory.
