Taylor Park Reservoir

It's time for me to plan another fishing/camping trip.  This time we are headed to Taylor Park Reservoir.  For those of you that aren't familiar with Taylor, it is located north of Gunnison and west of Buena Vista.  It is a beautiful drive from Buena Vista, over Cottonwood pass, which runs directly through the collegiate peaks.  Taylor reservoir itself offers fishing for Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Lake Trout, Kokanee Salmon and Northern Pike.

Fishing on the lake is completely free, there are no access fees or boating fees to access the lake.  There is also a marina that offers boat rentals, equipment sales and rentals and there is even a small food stand in front of the marina. 

Similar to the other lakes I have posted about, here are the specs for Taylor Park:

2,400 Surface Acres Of Water
Concrete boat ramp
Marina that includes boat rentals and tackle
Fishing for the following species:
Kokanee Salmon, Lake Trout, Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Cutthroat Trout and Northern Pike
Nearby camp sites, plus plenty of national forest roads for four wheelers and dirt bikes.
The lake and ramp are free to use, camping may have associated fees.

Before going you can check out the marina website here.  They have a phone number listed if you want to call for conditions before going out.
