Taylor River in Colorado


One of my clients went out and fished the Taylor. I’ve heard great things about this river and one day when my client was in my boat asked me what river would I recommend him going to fish and I said the Taylor. Here is the results and all I can say is WOW!!

The wives gave us the hall pass to go fishing so we decided to take advantage and to the Taylor River, CO C & R section for some monster Rainbows.
top flies:
Mysis Shrimp sz 18 to 22

RS2 sz 20 to 24

secret weapon sz 20 to 24

san juan worm sz 20

pheasant tail siz 20 – 24 (no bead)

egg patterns
Must use camo beads, Mojo mud, 5x flouro carbon, 4 x leaders, double nymph rigs with weight 18″ above your top fly, big indicators fishing 8′ to 15′ deep.
We caught more browns than we could count.  average between 16″ and 22′  (all natives)

We caught several Rainbows over 20″ but only two over 23″.   We witnessed several 25″ to 30″ fish caught. 

Water was high but clear below the reservoir. The lower Taylor and Gunnison were too high fish this trip.
