Located in the remote Taylor Canyon in southwest Colorado, Taylor River Lodge offers discerning guests world-class fishing without sacrificing any creature comforts. The property consists of a collection of stylish private cabins and family-friendly log homes that unobtrusively meander along the riverbank. Kokanee, the luxuriously comfortable main Lodge, beckons guests to the indoor/outdoor fireplaces and offers an unrivaled view of both the river and casting pond. You have exclusive use of the property’s amenities, such as the riverside pool house, sauna, steam, spa, and media cabin.
The Taylor River boasts large rainbow, brown, and brook trout. The Gunnison River features 26 miles of driftable water, prolific hatches, and dense per-mile trout populations. You can also opt to fish nearby Blue Mesa, Taylor Reservoir, a multitude of mountain streams, or experience heli-fishing.
Taylor River Lodge offers six private en suite cabins, one larger cabin with two suites and common living area, and one guest home with two suites and a bunkroom—reaching a max capacity of 30 guests. The Lodge is available for single suite/cabin stay or private hire of the entire property.
The trip cost includes high-end fishing and adventure equipment. Specifically, you will benefit from 4 and 5 wt. rods and floating lines for most scenarios. An in-depth Frontiers pre-trip information booklet and fully stocked on-site fly shop ensure nothing is left to chance.

I am often asked when is my favorite time to fish the West? I frankly love the full season… from chasing the early stonefly hatches in May and June, followed by the mayflies, caddis and terrestrials as the summer weeks progress. If you really pinned me down, however, autumn is the best for me. Why?
