Morrow Point Reservoir is located below Blue Mesa Reservoir, aproximately 25 miles west of Gunnison, Colorado. The reservoir is about 12 miles long and winds through the head end of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. Sheer cliff walls line almost the entire reservoir making foot access the only way to get to the reservoir. As the concessionaire for Curecanti National Recreation Area, Weekend Warrior Outdoors cranes two 21' pontoon boats over the dam every spring and runs them 11 miles up the reservoir to the only boat dock. Because of this, Morrow Point Reservoir is as close to fishing a private reservoir as you can get while still on public water. We target trophy Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Kokanee Salmon, and Lake Trout Mid-May through Mid-September.
come fish Morrow Point Reservoir
Perhaps the most beautiful fishing expeirence in the country!
Trips run Mid-May through Mid-September
Trips include a sack lunch and are all day. You will meet your guide at the Pine Creek Parking lot around 7:00am and then take the 232 stairs and 3/4 of a mile trail along the old Rio Grande Railroad Bed to the boat dock. Your guide will be carrying lunch, fuel, and fishing tackle so anything extra must be carried by the customer. Please bring appropriate clothing for Rocky Mountain weather.
