As Manager of Gold Creek Property Management, LLC, I would like to welcome you to Ohio City. Growing up in Colorado, I always knew I would return. Several years ago this came to fruition. We have been coming to the Gunnison Valley for 31 years for vacations. We now got to live in the place we vacationed at. Well versed in the area and its history and would love to share this with our guests. Hobbies include fly fishing, fly tying, jeeping, skiing (down hill & cross country). Would love to get you some of the hand-tied flies that I know work in the area. If time permits could be available as a fishing guide.
