where would it be? Since I am a jerry creek reservoir regular, it wouldn't be there since I've fished it a million times. It may be some of your guys' answers though. Me, I would say pueblo. I want to catch trophy wiper and walleye.

Taylor Park Reservoir... Been there for elk hunting. The scenery is incredible. I hear big fish stories from there too.

Would love to back pack into the Weminuche Wilderness for a week or two and fish Emerald Lake and the other surrounding lakes and streams. Need to do it before I get to old!

Any lake in the Flattops Wilderness Area...one of the most beautiful spots in Colorado...

Sentimental favorite...Longdraw Reservoir...caught my first big Colorado Cutthroat there 20 years ago...in the shadows of the Never Summer Mountains...and aptly named...

Zman, I also enjoy the Flat Tops. Upper and Lower Marvine Lakes are hard to beat for great scenery and nice trout!

Butts Lake up on Grand Mesa. It has been so many years since i have been up there. It was a really pretty trail leading up to the lake and I sure caught some nice cutts in there. I'd like to do it again sometime.

Mine would be anywhere between Taylor Res to Blue Mesa.  Both the lakes and the rivers  ;D.

If only there was work in Gunnison!

Hard to think of some place here in Colorado I haven't been to, that I wanted to go to? I really want to fish Lake Powell (yes I know it's not in Colorado).

I have never gotten down into the Black Canyou of the Gunnison! That would be cool!

If you saw the favorite lakes post, that's my favorite lake for cutthroats ;D The prettiest cutthroats EVER, though are from a little known, tiny, natural pond near a well known splake lake on the mesa. You must walk to it. That's as much as I'll say.
Pikester, where are you from in colorado?

A toss up between south park and the flattops!Only difference being the flattops are starting to get hammered while 11-mile doesnt seem to matter how many people fish it.

Slayerfish are you fishing 11 mile canyon or the section between 11 and spinney? I hit the canyon about 2 or 3 times a month. Close to home and I always knock them dead with the flyrod.

Black Canyon is awesome, hike a canoe down and camp right on the shore, not see another person except someone used to run a tour boat up to the dam and the tourists would wave and cheer when you hold up shore lunch
