Grape Creek - Bear Gulch

Grape Creek is a major stream that drains the majority of the Wet Mountain Valley in south central Colorado. Bear Gulch one of a few access areas to this creek. Water flow through the area is controlled upstream by DeWeese Reservoir. The Colorado Division of Wildlife and BLM are working with the irrigation company to provide managed flows that will enhance Grape Creek's fishery. The reservoir controls the creek's flow and maintains a steady volume most of the year. This lower elevation area is best fished in the spring, early summer and fall seasons.
