Recommended Gear for Taylor River Lodge, Colorado

And with a mile of semi-private water right out front, you can wet a line whenever the mood strikes you, unplug from the daily routine and focus on the moment. Just learning to fly fish? Our professional guides love to teach beginners on the lodge’s stocked trout pond, and on nearby rivers and lakes. Like to float fish? Avid anglers can enjoy 26 miles of the Gunnison River in pursuit of big browns, rainbows, and kokanee salmon. Prefer to hike and wade? A myriad of mountain streams are nearby, where accurate casts with dries or nymphs can produce astounding wild trout. And how about early season pike fishing on the flats of Taylor Reservoir, or working the feeder stream inlets at Blue Mesa for rainbows, browns and cutthroat. There’s no compromising on the quality of fishing options, and no compromising on the lodging, food and drink, or the optional outdoor activities either. The Taylor River property sprawls over 8 acres with riverfront cabins for couples and larger family cabins nestled under a forest of pines. Interspersed, and connected with lighted pathways, you’ll find reception and fly shop, spa building with pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and massage treatment rooms, and a spacious lodge with dining room, living room, bar and deck overlooking the river.If you’re an avid angler who likes to travel with non-angling friends or family members, no problem. There’s something for everyone at Taylor River Lodge.
