Morrow Point Reservoir / Black Canyon of The Gunnison River

Fishing The Black Canyon of the Gunnison

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 Mesas Dam and is Home to some of the most amazing fishing and scenery in Colorado. I guide fishing on Morrow Point from mid may into september and fish for Kokanee Salmon, Brown Trout, Rainbows, Lake Trout,  Brookies, and a few kinds of Cut Throat’s. Catch em’ all in the 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. Please contact Ryan VanLanen for info strait from the guide..

The scenery on Morrow Point is enough for quite a few of the regulars we have back year after year!
