River Summary: The Taylor River is a 46-mile-long tributary of the Gunnison River in western Colorado, USA. Named after the Scottish explorer and fur trader James Taylor, the river was once used by the Ute Indians as a trading route. The river's flow is primarily fed by snowmelt, and it is known for its excellent fishing opportunities for rainbow, brown, and cutthroat trout. The river also contains several reservoirs, including the Taylor Park Reservoir, which is a popular recreational area for boating and camping. Additionally, the river's water is used for agricultural purposes, supplying water to farms and ranches in the surrounding areas. The river is also home to several hydroelectric power plants, including the Taylor Park Dam, which generates electricity for the surrounding communities.
