Re: Colorado in the winter
If you take the advice of someone who said to try the tailwater below Taylor, you can also hit the roughly mile of open tailwater below Blue Mesa Dam called the "Pine Creek Area." I only add that because you'd be in the general Gunnison area anyway if you're fishing Taylor. Because of the Dept. of Homeland Security, you can no longer fish right up to the base of Blue Mesa Dam itself but rather have to stop about a quarter of a mile below the dam. The Pine Creek area is found by driving west out of Gunnison past Blue Mesa reservoir (Colorado's largest reservoir)and then take a right 3/4 of a mile past the dam. Bring some streamers too.
