Elk Creek Marina Guided Fishing

Elk Creek Marina Guided Fishing Services provide fishing trips on Blue Mesa Reservoir, the largest Kokanee Salmon fishery in the US, and for the more adventurous and very hearty there is Morrow Point Reservoir in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, with Elk Creek Marina being the only motorized fishing guided outfitter on this reservoir.  

These bodies of water are located on the Gunnison River in Gunnison, Colorado and are home to a variety of fish species:  Trophy Lake Trout, Kokanee Salmon, Rainbows, Browns and even Perch. The Gunnison River, from 200 yards downstream of Crystal Dam all the way through Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park to the North Fork is designated Gold Medal & Wild Trout Water. This designation is given to the lakes and streams of Colorado that offer the greatest potential for trophy trout fishing.
