The Taylor river rises close to Castle Peak in Colorado’s Elk Mountians near the continental divide. Flowing Southeast, the river goes through Taylor Park Reservoir witch has great fishing by the way and then continues on down to Almont Colorado where it meets the East River. The Taylor is one of the most popular trout streams in our state and for good reason. Lets go ahead and get it out of the way. So the tailwater below the dam has some really nice fish but be warned they are not easy to catch. This section is all catch and release so everyone knows. We personally like to fish the rest of the river where you can find great pocket water, deep pools, and amazing runs. In the lower Taylor we often find aggressive trout in swift currents that are more than willing to take a dry dropper.
