Incredible views at any time of the day, boating (including boat rentals), fishing, birding, wild life, hiking, camping, including RVs, it's all there. Two full service marinas and even a restaurant on the premises (seasonal) make the place a dream. It's about twenty miles West of Gunnison on Rt 50. Enjoyable any time of the year.

He took the time to make sure we were in the right spot and also shared with us tips... More

We were a large group and were treated well, even when some of us were just hanging around since we had to swap... More

Robby our guide was awesome. He worked hard all day long. He kept changing out lures making for sure that the fish were biting. He also made sure we were staying on the fish. He give us lots of tips and tricks to use on are own. Very educational and infromive guide.

We recently booked a trip with Sport Fish Colorado. Arranging a day/time was easy, and working with Robbie to coordinate our schedules was hassle free. Each of the guides we meet from Sport Fish Colorado were very professional, knew the water well, and put us on the fish. We went home with a cooler full of trout and salmon, and... More

I'm not a fisherman, but I understand it and I can think of no better place for fishing. The scenery is outstanding.
