Gore Creek originates high in the elusive Gore Range, which can be seen soaring above Vail Village. It flows from Gore lake South West to its confluence with the Eagle River in Minturn, CO. The upper stretches of Gore creek contain small, tight, pocket water that is best fished during the summer months with a variety of dry flies.  From Vail to Minturn, Gore creek is a more moderately sized stream which can fish well with dries, nymphs, and streamers.



As water levels rise in Gore Creek with spring run off, medium sized stoneflies, and small streamers can be effective patterns.
