Fish Morrow Point Reservoir 

Welcome to the head waters of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison! Morrow Point Reservoir is a Hydro-Dam located 11 miles down river from Blue Mesa Dam and is home to some of the most amazing fishing and scenery in Colorado. Guided fishing on Morrow Point Reservoir is available from mid May into September, only through Elk Creek Marina. We fish for Kokanee Salmon, Brown Trout, Rainbows, Lake Trout, Brookies, and a few kinds of Cut Throat’s. Catch em’ all in a day and it’s “MP Grand Slam”. This guided fishing trip can truly be a trip of a lifetime and is considered by most the “Best Fishing Tour” in Colorado.
