Spinney Mountain Reservoir

Spinney is THE place for big fish while fly fishing in Colorado stillwaters. In the spring and fall you can find big fish cruising the shallows of this scenic reservoir.

Near the town of South Park, Spinney is very crowded on opening day every year but it is a big reservoir and their is plenty of space.

Spring and Fall are the best time of year to fish this stillwater. If you want to try midsummer plan on going deep if you want to hook up. Bring plenty of chironomids, leaches, and damsels.

Located near Spinney, Antero Reservoir can offer some great stillwater action. Some years are better than others but most years are very good.

Similiar to Spinney, bring plenty of chironomids, leeches, and Damsels. If you want to focus on reservoirs during your fly fishing in Colorado trip, fish Spinney and Antero. The drive between them is not far.

Located near Almont, this stillwater holds a strong population of rainbow trout and lake trout. Again, spring and fall are best for flyfishing.
