Headed back to familiar ground. Will fish Spring Creek reservoir, Mirror Lake and a few creeks and the river in between. Plan on putting a few hundred miles on the Ranger over the 8 days we'll be there. Anyone been to this area recently? We usually go later, hearing Taylor River is high, Spring Creek Reservoir was drained last year for dam repair, so a few things for me to consider.

Think the Lake Fork Marina on Blue Mesa is closed but if not renting a boat is an option. About 5 years ago we rented a little "old" ski boat and had a blast driving it around the lake. Looked like the one below but it was black.

I was there recently, the Taylor at Almont is still over 500 cfs. Too high to wade fish until July.

Hoping it stays at 500cfm through the week of July 9-15, that makes for great rafting! We will be somewhere around Colorado Springs riding SxS’s, fishing, and white water rafting.

Anyone ever fished Texas Lakes, North of Taylor Reservoir on Texas Creek Trail? They're small and only accessible <50" vehicle. Found these on On X off road.
