Spinney Mountain Reservoir

 

General Overview

Callibaetis activity is strong on the weed beds now, so look for fish to be congregated. Many of the fish we're taking right now are 250 yards out from the second restrooms. 

 

Lake Conditions

 The reservoir is filling nicely, and fish are definitely happy campers! 

Lake Level: Low (2' Low) 

Clarity: Clear 

Suggested Methods

Running 2 rods, one with a static nymph rig, the other with a small olive or black streamer will be your best method. Fish seem to be sporadically cruising all shorelines, however you will find fish congregating on weed beds for Callibaetis also. You can run your static nymph rigs at around 10ft. in length with Callibaetis, Chironomids, Damselflies, and general attractor nymphs. Streamer rigs should be used for cruising fish you can see foraging.

  

Antero Reservoir

 

General Overview

Fishing has been strong since the opener, with some really nice hold over fish being caught...and plenty of stockers! Its hand-launch only right now, so if you have a float tube, you will have best success launching from the second entrance.

 

Lake Conditions

 The reservoir is low, however Denver Water will aim to fill it in the short term. We expect lake conditions to improve, however the current conditions haven't seemed to have a negative affect on fishing.
