Fly Fishing Report for Spinney Reservoir

Spinney Reservoir Fishing Report  

 

Spinney Mountain Reservoir

 

General Overview

Weed bed growth has been strong and Callibaetis activity along with it. In addition, Damselfly activity has started. We've also see a continuation of strong Chironomid activity...so it truly is a buffet out there. That being said, fishing can be technical if the hatch activity isn't strong, so productivity is relatively day to day.

 

Lake Conditions

 Reservoir is full, and clarity is good.

Lake Level: Full

Clarity: Clear 

Suggested Methods

 Fish are on the weed beds now, and feeding at 12-16 feet for the most part. Focus your efforts on a Callibaetis and Chironomid static rig, while mixing in a Damsel if needed. Our guides have done well stripping a damsel on a sink tip/ full sink line as well. 

 

Antero Reservoir

 

General Overview

Bug activity has been very similar on both Spinney and Antero as of late, due to weedbed growth. Weed bed growth has been strong and Callibaetis activity along with it. In addition, Damselfly activity has started. We've also see a continuation of strong Chironomid activity...so it truly is a buffet out there. That being said, fishing can be technical if the hatch activity isn't strong, so productivity is relatively day to day.
