Fall 2020

 

Spinney Mountain Reservoir

 

General Overview

Things have slowed down a bit as we enter the Fall Season, which is typical. Fish are moving back to the forage mode, so you could take fish on a variety of bugs and rigs right now. There are still Callibaetis and Damsels kicking around, but you'll be well suited to be prepared with streamer and leech rigs as well to prospect.

 

Lake Conditions

 Reservoir is full, and clarity is good.

Lake Level: Full

Clarity: Clear 

 

Suggested Methods

 Carry 2 rods, one focused on more static rig fishing...the other a streamer or leech rod used to cover water and prospect. Callibaetis and Damsel combos with the option for a Chironomid will be your go to bugs on a static indicator rig. Running an intermediate or streamer tip line with your streamers/ leeches will be the best method. 

 

Antero Reservoir

 

General Overview

Both Spinney and Antero are still fishing very similarly. Things have slowed down a bit as we enter the Fall Season, which is typical. Fish are moving back to the forage mode, so you could take fish on a variety of bugs and rigs right now. There are still Callibaetis and Damsels kicking around, but you'll be well suited to be prepared with streamer and leech rigs as well to prospect.
